Brett Ratner (Tower Heist) may team with Sony Pictures on his next film. Variety reports that Ratner and Sony are in final talks for a biopic that chronicles the rise of MTV. The project would be based on I Want My MTV: The Uncensored Story of the Music Video Revolution, written by music journalists Craig Marks and Rob Tannenbaum.
Ratner is producing along with Mosaic's Jimmy Miller, and John Cheng will serve as executive producer. The script will be penned by Jody Lambert (People Like Us), who is also producing. The story is "an oral history of MTV, one that focuses on its growth in the 1980s and early 90s."
Rat Entertainment produced Mirror Mirror, which looks horrible and arrives in theaters soon. I hope that this movie turns out better. I grew up watching MTV so I like the idea of a film. If a Facebook movie can work, this may too.
Do you think that the story of MTV will make an enjoyable movie?
