The VH1 biopic of platinum-selling girl group TLC is taking shape.
Rapper and VMA stage crasher Lil Mama, Keke Palmer and actress-singer Drew Sidora (“The Game”) are set to portray the groundbreaking R&B/hip-hop/pop trio known for its brazen anthems and fiery interpersonal drama.
"I would sing 'No Scrubs' over and over again to the point my parents would have to tell me to stop, but I never did, I had my little hairbrush as my mic and nobody could tell me I wasn't the fourth member of TLC," Palmer said in a statement announcing her casting.
Lil Mama, the rambunctious voice behind “Lip Gloss” and judge of MTV’s “America's Best Dance Crew,” will take on the role of Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes, who died in a car crash in Honduras in 2002. Palmer (“Akeela & the Bee”) is tapped to portray Rozonda “Chilli” Thomas, and Sidora will play Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins.
Thomas and Watkins also announced a musical comeback that would include their first original material since their 2002 album “3D,” which was released six months after Lopes’ death. The surviving members are expected to cut new music for a soundtrack to the VH1 film. Earlier last year, it was also announced that the group was considering a North American tour that would incorporate video projections of Lopes.
TLC has sold more than 65 million records worldwide. No word on what label will issue the upcoming disc or a projected release date.
VH1 announced plans of the biopic, titled "Crazy, Sexy, Cool: The TLC Story," late last year.
