Run DMC movie in the works

January 30, 2009

Notorious screenwriter Cheo Hodari Coker is working on a biopic about legendary rap group Run-DMC, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The screenplay — adapted from Bill Adler’s Tougher Than Leather: The Rise of Run-DMC — will chronicle career of the Hollis, New York hip-hop trio: Joseph “Run” Simmons, Darryl “DMC” McDaniels, and the late DJ Jason “Jam Master Jay” Mizell, who was murdered in 2002.

“It’s an extraordinary rags-to-riches journey that I’m eager to bring to the screen,” DJ Classicz President Dallas Jackson said. “And I’m hoping to have Run, DMC and Russell Simmons’ involvement. This will be a big movie about the 1980s hip-hop movement that took over the world.”  (The National Post)
