Jane Austen's 'Emma' to Be Hip-Hop Musical Film


Latest reports claimed that Jane Austen's classic novel 'Emma' will be adapted to be a hip-hop musical drama film by Screen Gems.

"Emma", the classic novel written by Jane Austen, reportedly will be brought to the big screen in the form of a drama musical. According to Variety, the film that is possibly entitled "Emme" is planned to be made into a hip-hop musical by Screen Gems.

Screen Gems executive Clint Culpepper revealed that the idea to make "Emme" came after he watched Lil Mama's music video "Lipgloss". The film is further said to feature at least 15 song and dance numbers. It will also be taking place at an inner-city high school, unlike another "Emma"-inspired film, Alicia Silverstone's 1995 comedy "Clueless", which was set in a suburban Southern California high school. "Now it's urban," Culpepper explained. "This is the way it should be reimagined in the new millennium."

"Emme" is set to be produced by Chris Bender and J.C. Spink via Benderspink. The film that is described to be a contemporary-set tale about a stepbrother and stepsister will be Screen Gems' latest hip-hop film following "Stomp the Yard" and "You Got Served". The script for the film will be penned by Tyger Williams.
