A Gucci Mane biopic based on his memoir is on its way

13 February 2018
Ever wake up in the middle of the night wondering just how Gucci Mane came to be Gucci Mane? Paramount Pictures and Imagine Entertainment (the production team behind 8 Mile) think so. That's why they're putting together a biopic on the rapper based on his memoir, The Autobiography of Gucci Mane.
 
Paramount reportedly obtained rights to the autobiography as well as to Gucci's lifestory, according the the Hollywood Reporter.
 
Just like the book, the biopic will track Radric Davis from his upbringing in Alabama all the way to his rise in hip hop.
 
The book was largely written will Gucci was in prison, giving him a significant moment to reflect.
