Coming Soon New Edition Biopic, Tour & New Album

Yes it is all too incredible to be true. According to plans are in the works for an upcoming BET biopic about my all time favorite group New Edition.


The group’s Johnny Gill told Billboard that they are working on some new New Edition music to accompany the film in 2017, which would be the group’s first album since 2004’s One Love. “I have put aside some songs already for New Edition,” Gill reports. “We’re gonna try to have the album ready to go by the time the movie’s out, by 2017 when the movie drops. I’m making plans to start the recording process with that as well.” The film is currently being cast, with some roles already determined but not announced yet.


“I was just disappointed that Denzel [Washington] wasn’t available to play me,” Gill says with a laugh. “Actually, I just want somebody who can capture the essence of me, and I think that’s important for all of us in the movie. That’s going to be the most important thing in telling this story is that these actor capture the essence of who we are. We’re hands-on involved as well. We have to spend time with them. They’re going to spend time with us for a week or two and kinda just get to know us and our personalities and get insight and stuff like that. It’s going to be interesting when it all comes together, but everybody’s gonna get a chance to tell and see what our story’s like. We can’t wait.”

Really bro who are you kidding ? We cannot wait. Whenever you can get your hands on New Edition tickets you are definitely winning !!
