Ziggy Marley is with Paramount Pictures to develop a biopic about his late legendary father, Bob Marley.
A Bob Marley biopic is finally coming our wayyy!
Bob Marley died of cancer at the age of 36 but in that short lifetime, he changed the landscape of music, introducing generations to reggae music with such hit songs as Get Up, Stand Up, One Love No Woman, No Cry, Could You Be Loved, Buffalo Soldier, Jammin and Redemption Song
The accomplished Jamaican singer-songwriter, who died in 1981, had a father who was caucasian and because of that found himself discriminated against in his country. Although he rose to great fame and fortune, Bob Marley never forgot where he came from. He remained humble until the end of his life. And the power he achieved in music will never be forgotten.
No word yet on when the biopic is expected to be released, but I will definitely keep you posted on this project.
This is DOPE
