Musical Being Made Based On Outkast LP

Mosaic Media Group, responsible for such movies

as Scooby-Doo and Scooby-Doo 2, Three Kings and Scary Movie 1 and 2, has sold

six yet to be made films to HBO Pictures that will be created and directed by

new upcoming filmmakers.

The first in development is an untitled movie

based around Outkast's upcoming double album, Speakerboxx/The Love Below.

According to reports, the movie will be a musical centering around a love triangle

and will be directed by veteran music video director, Bryan Barber.

"This is about finding new and fresh talent

and giving them the opportunity in an exceptional forum to present their work,"

Mosaic president of production Robert Guralnick said in a statement.

"We are delighted to have pre-sold this

series to HBO Films. The opportunity to be part of their unique vision and commitment

to original filmed entertainment is a great honour for us."

Mosiac recently created a new marketing company,

Elevation Entertainment, and acquired a 50 % stake in the marketing division

of The Steven Rifkind Company.

Outkast's Speakerboxx/The Love Below is

slated to hit stores August 19.
