L.T. Hutton and David Robinson are bringing Big Meech's story to the big screen.
L.T. Hutton and David Robinson, producers of Tupac Shakur’s upcoming biopic, have acquired the rights for the B.M.F. movie, which will focus on Black Mafia Family leader Demetrius “Big Meech” Flenory and the drug trafficking organization’s history.
According to HipHopWired, the producers are currently pulling the script together. “We have a passion and enthusiasm in bringing Big Meech's story to the big screen," said Hutton. “We're working closely with Meech and Tammy Cowins to make sure every aspect of the story is done correctly.”
The story will focus on the Detroit-based drug operation that later expanded across the United States in the ‘90s. The Black Mafia Family recently got a shout-out from Rick Ross, who named his single “B.M.F.” after the organization.
