Hip Hop Artist Lauryn Hill to Play Bob Marley's Wife?


Lauryn Hill


Reportedly, the Grammy-winning singer has been considered to play the wife of the reggae legend in the first ever biopic film about him.

Following reports that the Weinstein Company have gotten the screen rights of Bob Marley's biopic "Untitled Bob Marley Biopic", it is now said that the Grammy-winning hip-hop singer Lauryn Hill is considered to star in the drama film. According to Hollywood Reporter, the "Doo Wop (That Thing)" hitmaker is thought to be suitable to portray Marley's wife, Rita.

The 32-year-old singer who is married to Marley's son Rohan has been considered for the special role by Rita herself. On the matter, Rita who will act as the film's executive producer revealed, "Lauryn would be ideal [to play me]. She sees my life as her life." On other casting news, it was said that Marley's grandson Stefan is one of the perfect candidates to depict the reggae legend as he was described as a "spitting image of Bob" by Rita.

The drama film which is slated for late 2009 release is a first-ever biographical feature film about Marley. It will be based on Rita's 2004 autobiography entitled "No Woman No Cry: My Life With Bob Marley" that chronicled the childhood and marriage life of Marley as well as his battle with cancer. It was said that the Jamaican singer will be played by two actors, one as a teenage Marley and the other as the adult one.
