Matthew Knowles is back in the spotlight and this time it isn’t about his baby mamas and their court battles. A few weeks ago Sony e-mail hackers, “Guardians of Peace” revealed Knowles reached out to studio executives about making a movie focusing on Destiny’s Child. While the Screen Gems executive Clint Culpepper and Sony Pictures Entertainment’s co-chairwoman Amy Pascal seemed interested in the project based on e-mails, nothing came to pass. Recently, Knowles spoke with The Wall Street Journal where he stated he was still trying to get the movie off the ground.
Their story, which starts when they were nine or 10 years old in Houston, it’s a story that really engages you. It talks about their challenges, their successes, their failures. One of the great aspects of a Destiny’s Child movie … is the empowerment of the songs and the empowerment that Destiny’s Child has given to women… I would also want the ladies of Destiny’s Child to be involved and engaged with it and get their support. That would be important as well. That story is very special to us and we want to make sure and ensure that we get the right screenwriter, that we build the right team around it and that we have the right network.
Most people don’t know that I still officially manage Destiny’s Child. Destiny’s Child. Some people use the words ‘broke up.’ Destiny’s Child has never broken up officially. So don’t be surprised one day if there’s a new record or a tour because the group never officially broke up.
Papa Knowles better not be getting our hopes up about that new album! Watch the interview below
