G.P., are you wit me?!
Sony has announced a Kirk Franklin biopic is in the works with Devon Franklin at the helm.
Devon will produce the project through his Franklin Entertainment banner with Kirk serving as executive producer.
Brian Ivie (The Drop Box) has been tapped to write the film which will follow 14-time Grammy-winning artist from his humble beginning through his meteoric rise to fame as he changes the face of gospel music and battles his demons in the process.
Franklin, often dubbed as the king of gospel music, released his first album in 1993 called Kirk Franklin & The Family, which went platinum with over 1 million copies sold, the first gospel album to do so, and charted at No. 1 on the Billboard Top Gospel Albums chart for 42 weeks. He’s also behind such hits as “Looking for You”, “Revolution,” “Hosanna,” “Stomp,” “Wanna Be Happy?,” among others.
No word yet on when the Kirk Franklin biopic is expected to be released, but I definitely plan to check it out.
What should be the title for the biopic?
