Have you been craving more Vanilla Ice? If so, today might be a very good day for you. According to a new production listing, Dave Franco is set to star as Vanilla Ice in an upcoming biopic titled To The Extreme.
To The Extreme was the name of his record-breaking debut album, which sold more than 15 million copies worldwide and includes the hit Ice Ice Baby.
The production listing included the logline you see below…
“From a high school dropout selling used cars in Dallas to having the first hip-hop single to top the Billboard charts with Ice Ice Baby, a young Vanilla Ice struggles with stardom, extortion attempts, and selling out as he makes music history.”
Screenwriters Phil Van and Chris Goodwin are set to write the script and James Franco is reportedly on board to produce. This project is obviously in the very early stages of development. It doesn’t even look like the script has been completed yet, so a lot could change.
“Per the listing, Ramona Films and Endeavor Content are the companies behind the biopic currently. Once a script is completed, they would likely look to partner with a major studio to bring the movie to life.”
We will keep you posted. But for right now, enjoy…
