Could a Destiny’s Child movie be coming to a theater near you? If Matthew Knowles has anything to say it will. Sony hackers once again released a new round of e-mails featuring studio executives but this time with some of the music world’s biggest names. In an e-mail dated on Dec. 4, 2013 former Destiny’s Child manager Matthew Knowles approached Sony big wigs on creating a biopic surrounding the popular R&B group. Screen Gems exec Clint Culpepper corresponded with Sony Pictures Entertainment’s co-chairwoman Amy Pascal about Beyoncé and Solange’s father shopping a movie around according to The Daily Beast. Culpepper wrote:
Matthew Knowles, Beyonce’s Father wants to make the film of Destiny’s Child and came to me first. He’s going to Universal next. Do we think it would be a successful film? They’re on Sony label. I’m just not sure that it’s not too soon.
The Sony executives appear to be excited about the possibility of creating the movie, but nothing came about. Meanwhile, Lifetime is releasing a movie about Destiny’s Child in Feb. 2015, but there is no word if papa Knowles is behind it.
The Sony hackers calling themselves, “Guardians of Peace” also revealed Kanye West’s camp approached Pascal to create a feature film. West’s creative assistant Elon Rutberg reached out to Pascal on Aug. 4, 2014 about a possible flick involving the rapper and heavy duty cinematography. Rutberg wrote:
I supervise all of Kanye’s film and media projects, and we have a major film project coming up that involves both cinematic and technological innovation, so I naturally thought Sony and wanted to reach out. We premiered a multi-screen cinema experience to great response at Cannes 2012, and are looking to take the storytelling to the next level with a feature length film, shot for an immersive cinema experience.
We can only imagine what this type of Yeezy project would entail.
