The people over at VH1 have announced their plan to produce a scripted biopic film based on the career & lives of popular “Waterfalls” girl group, TLC. Kate Lanier, who has written scrips for hit films like “What’s Love Got To Do With It,” “Beauty Shop,” and “Set It Off,” will be lending her penning skills to the project. Of course it would only be right that former group members, Chilli and Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins will serve as executive poducers of the movie.
When the news was announced, T-Boz & Chill issued their statements:
“The reality of this brings me to tears because I am seeing one of my dreams come to life. I alwaysfelt our story had to be told. What makes it even more amazing is having Kate Lanier on board. I remember watching ‘What’s Love Got To Do With It’ with Lisa, and I knew then whoever wrote that story had to write ours. I will forever be thankful to [executive producer] Jeff Olde for believing in our story and going the extra mile to make it happen,” said Chilli.
“I’m just overjoyed. I appreciate Jeff Olde and everyone on staff at VH1 that took interest in us, thank you. Kate Lanier is amazing. I’m honored to work with her I love her art. Well here we go on another TLC ride and I can’t wait. Like Biggie said ‘Now if ya don’t know, now ya knowwwww,’” stated Tionne. [Source]
