Charles Stone III to Direct ‘Crazy, Sexy, Cool: The TLC Story’
A lot of eyes are watching this project. Will the director best known for his imaginative vignettes be able to tackle the life and career of TLC?
Say what you want about who is playing the iconic roles of superstars Rozonda “Chilli” Thomas, Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes, and Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins, but you will be watching when it airs.
In the film, titled Crazy, Sexy, Cool: The TLC Story,” the full-length TV movie will be helmed by Charles Stone III (Drumline, Paid in Full, Mr. 3000), which is penned by screenwriter Kate Lanier. “With this cast, we are thrilled with the talent assembled both in front of and behind the cameras,” stated Jeff Olde, Executive Vice President, Original Programming and Production, VH1. “TLC are truly music pioneers and this movie is a fantastic way to expand our scripted push by combining our audience’s passion for music with their love of story. We know our viewers will be eager to go beyond the headlines and into the surprisingly personal, never before told stories of these groundbreaking women.”
We’re hoping for the latter as KeKe Palmer, Lil Mama and Drew Sidora step into the condom-stapled pants of the Grammy Award winning trio.
The film is slated to begin shooting next month in Atlanta.
