Bobby Brown

Just got word via email that a script on the life of Bobby Brown is being shopped around Hollywood, and there's apparently been some interest, although details are still sparse currently.

Michael Pinckney and Bobby Brown are said to have teamed up on the project (penned by both Bobby & Michael, who I'm told acquired the rights to the story). There are reports that Bobby wants daughter Bobbi Kristina to appear in the movie, however, I've been able to confirm that this is not true.

Titled The Bad Boy of R&B: The Bobby Brown Story (see image below), the script has apparently been passed around a bit, starting last fall; but there was reportedly very little interest at the time, from studios; but I suppose with Whitney Houston's death, potential backers are now singing a different tune, looking to capitalize on that unfortunate occurrence. 

Here's how the synopsis for The Bad Boy Of R&B reads (courtesy of Global Grind):

Sex, Drugs, Women and the Original Bad Boy of R&B, a toxic mix. The Bad Boy of R&B is a classic tale of R&B sensation Bobby Brown’s meteoric rise from humble beginnings in Boston to the top of the R&B and Pop charts. His struggle with drugs, alcohol, women and a troubled marriage is a rocky journey and an inspirational one. One of hope redemption and the power of the human spirit. Having already accomplished more as a teenager than most men in a lifetime, Bobby must now face the greatest challenge of his life . . . .Take this emotional journey with the original Bad Boy of R&B as we fully exposes his faults contradictions in this in-depth story of his many triumphs, trials and tribulations. The film exposes Bobby’s darker side and puts his private demons on public display.

The news come directly from The JDot. Agency who rep Pinckney.

So who wants to see a Bobby Brown biopic?

Secondly, who should play him in the film?
