Vanilla Ice Getting a Biopic Starring Dave Franco

Alright stop, Dave Franco is gonna make your year whenever this comes out. Franco confirmed he’ll be playing rapper Vanilla Ice in a biopic, tentatively titled To the Extreme. According to Production Weekly:

“From a high school dropout selling cars in Dallas to having the first hip-hop single to top the Billboard charts with ‘Ice Ice Baby,’ a young Vanilla Ice struggles with stardom, extortion attempts, and selling out as he makes music history.”

Franco says we’ll be surprised and will take a liking to Vanilla the same way we did with Tommy Wiseau in The Disaster Artist.

“With that movie, people expected us to make a broad comedy where we make fun of Tommy Wiseau, but the more real we played it, the funnier and heartfelt it was — that’s the tone we want for this one as well”

I, for one, cannot wait to see how they portray Suge Knight threatening to throw Vanilla Ice off a balcony unless he signed over his royalties.
