2 Live Crew Motion Picture

Lionsgate Films is moving quickly on The Book Of Luke, a drama about the provocative hip hop group 2 Live Crew and its leader Luther Campbell, whose parody version of the Roy Orbison hit song ''Oh Pretty Woman'' went all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court before a landmark ruling favored Campbell and paved the way for fair use sampling for music judged to be parody.

Up-and-coming actor RJ Cyler will play Campbell in the film. The Book of Luke is based on the memoir Book Of Luke: My Fight For Truth, Justice And Liberty City.

The film will tell a story that is Straight Outta Compton meets The People Vs. Larry Flynt, the rise of a provocative hip hop group and its envelope-pushing antics that got Campbell out of his poverty-stricken origins in Miami to become a millionaire and a galvanizing symbol of free speech.

If the film is cast right, it could be a really good one.
