Mathew Knowles continues to keep hope alive for a Destiny’s Child reunion, and not only a reunion, but Knowles hopes to take the group’s story to film or TV.
In a recent interview with The Huffington Post, Beyonce’s father and former manager revealed he’s in talks with various TV and film companies. Even though the group has now disbanded, contractually, he’s still the manager of the group and has rights to any project under the name and brand.
“I am extremely hopeful that the ladies will come back with an album and a tour. I’m working on a few Destiny’s Child projects right now,” he said. “I’m talking to the film and TV community right now, regarding a Destiny’s Child movie or TV series of some sort. I’m hopeful that within the next two to three years we’ll see something major come from it.”
It was revealed during last year’s Sony email hack that Knowles has been conversing with Sony about an idea for a biopic. He revealed he even has actors in mind for the biopic but kept that info under wraps.
Earlier this year in January, the group’s co-manager Brian K. Moore revealed he’s also planning on doing not one, but TWO biopics based on the girl group that dominated the charts from the late 90s to the early 00s. Moore told Madame Noire that there’s interest in two films, one focusing on the original members of Girls Tyme/Destiny’s Child as children, and another on Andretta Tillman, an ex-co manager who passed away from lupus, and the adult management of the group.
Could this merely be a race for who can get a Destiny’s Child greenlighted first? In all this haste, let’s hope if one comes to fruition, it’s done right!
