Mac Miller's Estate Halts New Documentary By CJ Wallis
(AllHipHop News) A documentary detailing the life of Mac Miller has been stopped by agents for the late rapper's estate just hours after it was announced.
On Monday, Canadian filmmaker CJ Wallis announced he had begun work on a new project all about the hip-hop star, which he wanted to use to preserve his legacy.
He tweeted, "So, over the next year I'm going to start collecting interviews & content to make the definitive @MacMiller documentary for his family, friends & fans..."
But Wallis returned to Twitter to declare plans for the film had been halted for now at the behest of Miller's former manager, Christian Clancy, and representatives for his estate.
"We heard back from @christianclancy & The Estate who said the family has requested we hold off on the project at this time," Wallis posted. "We immediately complied as the last thing we'd want is to negatively impact anyone involved, quite the opposite."
Mac, real name Malcolm McCormick, suffered a lethal drug overdose in September.
Attorney David Byrnes was named as the personal rep for the late star's estate, while Mac's brother, Miller McCormick, and his parents Karen and Mark were also put in charge of the 26-year-old's affairs.
