Gucci Mane is Planning on Turning His 2017 Autobiography into a Movie
Gucci life would make a crazy movie.
Last September, rapper Gucci Mane released one of the better hip-hop books you’ll ever read: The Autobiography of Gucci Mane.
Written with journalist Neil Martinez-Belkin, the book was a massive success, debuting at number four on The New York Times Bestseller list.
Now it might be time for a movie.
On Wednesday the rapper sent out a tweet saying that the movie was coming to a “theatre near you:”

Interesting enough, The Autobiography of Gucci Mane was supposed to be a script. Speaking to Vulture about the book, Gucci said:
“I actually wanted to write a screenplay. While I was in prison my friend [Spring Breakers director] Harmony Korine was sending me books and telling me to write a screenplay. Then one day, my engineer told me that I should write a book.”
Who should play Gucci Mane? Any suggestions?
