Indie Wire is reporting that Maybach Music Group’s Meek Mill is set to star in a fictional American crime drama entitled, The Tony Story. The film will be produced by Queen Latifah and her Flavor Unit Entertainment along with creative partner Shakim Compere. The Tony Story is loosely based on one of Mills’ record about his experiences growing up hard in Philadelphia.
Check out the film’s synopsis below:
Tony and Ty had big dreams of getting rich. Although they grew up like brothers, once money and envy entered the equation, greed took over and loyalty went out the door. After a deadly shooting, the streets of Philly were in an uproar and the lives of many people revolved around revenge.
Gold digger Kee capitalized on the built-up tension; but before she could really enjoy the fruits of her labor, she was thrust into the middle of a street war with the cost being her life.
Trust was not an option and revenge was the only thing anyone had in common. Paulie wanted revenge for his cousin; LB wanted revenge for his brother. They both had blood in their eyes and murder in mind; names were called while gunners lurked in the shadows. It became bigger than the almighty dollar and no one was safe.
Philly won’t be the same after you’re a witness to Tony Story.
The Tony Story will also be co-produced by James Lindsay of Dream Chasers.
