Hill to play Rita in Bob Marley Biopic?

4 03 2008

Rita Marley is desperate for singer Lauryn Hill to portray her on screen in the first ever biopic of her late husband, reggae icon Bob Marley. Marley is working as executive producer on the big screen adaptation of her 2004 autobiography No Woman No Cry: My Life With Bob Marley – and has her sights set on casting the former Fugees frontwoman, her daughter-in-law, in the chronicle of her tumultuous 15-year marriage to the musician. She explains, “Lauryn would be ideal (to play me). She sees my life as her life.” The as-yet-untitled project is slated to begin filming early next year (2009).
