Black Mafia Family Movie Headed for the Big Screen
L.T. Hutton and David Robinson to produce project about Detroit drug kingpin Demetrius Flenory.
Program Pictures has acquired the motion picture rights to the story of the Black Mafia Family, the Detroit-based drug-trafficking empire created by Demetrius "Big Meech" Flenory, who entered the hip-hop music scene through BMF Entertainment.
Program’s L.T. Hutton will produce with Morgan Creek’s David Robinson. The two are also producing the Tupac biopic, which starts production later this year.
“We have a passion and enthusiasm in bringing Big Meech’s story to the big screen," commented Hutton. “We’re working closely with Meech and Tammy Cowins to make sure every aspect of the story is done correctly. Over the upcoming months, we’ll be working on getting a script together so we can begin filming as early as next year."
Robinson most recently produced Dream House, directed by Jim Sheridan and starring Daniel Craig, Naomi Watts and Rachel Weisz, which will be released through Morgan Creek and Universal
