A couple of weeks ago, I mentioned that the past was coming back to haunt us, in the form of remakes.
So, who wants to see Juice, starring Soulja Boy? I kid you not. From vibe.com:
VIBE: Can you tell us a little bit about the story line for Juice?
SB: Basically, it’s your boy Soulja and I’m Bishop in 2011, running around in the streets, man. You know how the movie goes, but we’re flipping it and shooting in Atlanta. I want to show these people my acting side and me being creative–always giving them something new; that’s all. I got same video director that shot “Crank That,” “Kiss Me Through The Phone,” “Turn My Swag On” –my most successful videos. The whole mixtape is the soundtrack for the movie.
Yes, Juice, the 1992 ghetto classic about the trials and tribulations of four young hooligans, gets an update for today’s youth. I fail to see how this will be anything but a total disaster. I’m no 2pac fan, but Soulja playing the role of Bishop is just sacrilege. No word on who will play the roles of the other three brats, but we’ll likely see Waka Flocka Flame as Raheem, Lil’ B as Steel and Wiz Khalifa as Q. If they’re going to overload the movie with horrible rappers, they might as well go for the gusto.
As mentioned above, Soulja has released a new mixtape to promote the project, but I’ll spare you the trouble and not link to it.
If we’re really gonna go through with this, can I be the one who pushes “Bishop” off the roof? Please?
