Travis Scott has long been a admirer of Late DJ Screw and La Flame has a chance to shape his Screwed-Up Click legend’s legacy. Scott is an executive producer on Screw’s biopic that is due out in the near future.
This Wednesday (November 16) is the 22nd anniversary of DJ Screw’s passing. As according to the Deadline, Scott has been offered an executive producer position alongside Isaac Bowman for the Houston Hip Hop celebrity biopic, which will be directed by Columbia Pictures’ Vice President Maia Eyre.
“Continuing this legacy left by my father is very crucial… It has been incredibly exciting. I’m amazed that we’re actually about to make the film,” Screw’s sister Michelle Wheeler made a statement in an announcement.
“Nearly a dozen film producers and directors have approached us throughout the decades but that was the very first time that I was completely at ease. I’m extremely grateful for Sony and Travis joining us on the same journey and aiding in keeping my brother’s legacy alive.”
Scott’s participation in this biopic might be a result of fate, following the time that Yowman met Trav along with his Cactus Jack team at an office in Los Angeles where they discussed the project to make a film of the legendary filmmaker for more than an hour.
“The love for Screw was mutual, and he told me I had his full support,” Yowman stated. “We’re both born in Mo. City, which means there’s more to play a role in.
“I’m thankful for having his sisters Michelle as well as brother Charles to be my back-up as a reliable support system. I’m not an expert on everything and there’s a lot of information available and being able to speak to legendary figures like Lil Keke and Bun B and D-Reck, and gain impartial opinions has helped to me in navigating the maze.”
