Could Tupac's story be next?
"Notorious" screenwriter Cheo Hodari Coker reportedly is set to co-executive produce and adapt a screenplay for an upcoming biopic of Run-DMC, the chart-topping rappers behind hits "Walk This Way" and "It's Like That."
Both "Notorious" and Adler's book revolve around rap superstars who were shot to death at the prime of their careers — Christopher Wallace, also known as Biggie Smalls and the Notorious B.I.G., and Run-DMC's DJ, Jason "Jam Master Jay" Mizell. Wallace died in 1997 in Los Angeles, and Mizell was slain in his Queens studio in 2002.
After Mizell's death, Run-DMC retired. The group will be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame on April 4.
