AceShowbiz - Revered moviemaker Terrence Malick is developing a new documentary about tragic rapper Lil Peep.
The legendary director, who is a friend of the late star's family, has stepped up to executive produce the project, according to The New York Times.
The news comes a week before the release of Lil Peep's posthumous new album "Come Over When You're Sober Pt. 2", which drops on 9 November.
Peep was putting the finishing touches to the album when he died from an accidental drug overdose last year (17).
The rapper's mother, Liza Womack, attended a listening party held in Manhattan on 18 October, and told fans and label bosses she was very happy with the bittersweet album.
"This is an important album because it's the work of a creative, young, trailblazing artist," she told party guests, according to Fader.
"This album is important also because Gus is dead. It's important because Gus is dead, but this is the album he would've made if he were living... Gus cared deeply about his music, and he cared far more about the quality of his work than making it big."
