"F*ck You" singer, slash "The Voice" television show judge (slash Gnarls Barkley member), Cee-Lo Green has reportedly signed on to play Wu-Tang member Raekwon's father in an upcoming biopic titled "C.R.E.A.M."
“Cee Lo Green is playing my pops in the film,” said Raekwon. “Cee Lo is gon’ play Raekwon’s ol’ dad! He’s a good friend of mine. When I called him and told him about it he was just overwhelmed. He’s just one out of the greats that’s gonna be on the project.”
The "C.R.E.A.M." cast already includes The Cool Kids’ own Chuck Inglish, who will play a younger version of the Staten Island, New York native. Once completed, who exactly will distribute the new film? Well Raekwon says he is looking for a nationwide deal through Lions Gate.
“We’re definitely going for the theaters,” he continued. “The people that are gonna be involved with it definitely feel like it’s a great picture, and there’s a definite possibility it’s a Lions Gate film.”
