Freeway Ricky Ross Bio-Pic
“Freeway” Rick Ross has teamed with Emmy Award winning actor and writer Nick Cassavetes, who will help produce and write a screenplay based on Ross’ life. Ross and Cassavetes are working in conjunction with the Geno Taylor and Apocalypto Films to write and produce the screenplay to Ross’ life.
The untitled, autobiographical film will reveal the truth about his Los Angeles upbringing, his struggle to become financially literate, his time behind bars and his journey to becoming educated.
“I love working with Nick, I think he’s great I love his films,” Rick Ross told AllHipHop.com in a statement. “He and I really vibed the first time we met and I think he truly understands the story. Not only has he been following my life for 25 years but he’s also someone I can kick it with!”
Cassavetes is known for directing such critically acclaimed films as The Notebook (2004), Alpha Dog (2006), and My Sister’s Keeper (2009). He also co-wrote the screenplay for the critically acclaimed movie “Blow” starring Johnny Depp.
