The Juice Crew Movie

It appears that there is an upcoming film all about Marley Marl's Juice Crew. We're talking Hollywood here!
So far The Vapors is going to feature Roxanne Shanté, M.C. Shan, Tragedy, Biz Markie and Tyrone 'Fly Ty' Williams. Cuba Gooding Jnr is to play the man Marley Marl. And there's a strong rumour that Nas will play Kool G. Rap.

So who's going to play Biz Markie? Master Ace? Craig G? Are we going to see Grandaddy I U and Diamond Shell on the silver screen?
And if there's going to be the story of the crew with the juice then surely they've got to have the Bridge Wars? Who's gonna be KRS?

This makes me want to watch Krush Groove all over again. "No more auditions!", "Box.....!!".

More details here

N.b. Just to make it clear that Roxanne Shanté, M.C. Shan, Tragedy, Biz Markie and Tyrone 'Fly Ty' Williams won't actually be acting as themselves in the film but professional actors will be doing that.

Hate to disapoint ya bruv, but the last I heard the film has been shelved.
This clip is just about all that exists of 'The Vapours' coz it didn't make it out of the development stage.

amazing how these cats then made no money and it shows now who wouldn't wanna see themselves depicted on t.v. or the big screen.. I love how all these mfers like kweli & others want be in this movie and are looking for a role, cats with some pockets. yet what this film needs is not more actors working for scale or points but more people willing to invest and put THEIR OWN money where there mouth is and show real support to this project not "oh ill play my favorite rapper growin up", good will and volunteer work doesn't get movies made. u hear that kweli? but all mfers want do is talk shit thats why its been in Pre (in other words talked about only) production for years!

They was on about David Banner playin' Biz Markie at one point, at least get people that look something like for chrissakes.
Notorious may have been a pile of shit but at least that dude looked and sounded summat like Biggie.
Then again Blair Underwood looked fuck all like Russell 'Rush' Simmons in Krush Groove so wadda I know.
Like they say... Fingers crossed.
