Although Jim Jones was the first to spill the beans about a possible “action flick” film about the Diplomats; Juelz Santana verified our suspicions after recently sitting down with XXL to reveal further details without telling too much about about their movie and its working title, Diplomatic Immunity.
Juelz shares the storyline behind the movie, “It’s gon’ be [about] the break up and us gettin’ back together leadin’ into the album. The album is gonna be like the soundtrack to the movie. It’s just gonna be everything from [Cam'ron] meeting Biggie to him meeting me and us becoming The Diplomats.”
Juelz also wanted to make it quite clear that the movie was to not be confused with a documentary; the movie should be more like a biography.
“It’s gonna be a movie like the way they did Notorious. But we’re just gonna be playin’ ourselves. That might be the first [movie] where we get to play ourselves instead of havin’ people. We’ll do it when we’re younger, but as it gets to us we’ll really play ourselves, cut the hair off our face so we look younger and shit like that.
With intentions of playing their own characters in the movie, Juelz knows some sacrifices will have to occur in order for the realness and the younger Diplomats to be depicted.
“Cam might have to gain some weight from when he was big. Jim would have to grow his braids back, get some extensions and all that ’cause he cut his hair. We gon’ figure it out, but we gon’ do it right.” —Noelle Lattimore
