The exploits of Big Meech and the Black Mafia Family have already been turned into a hit single by Rick Ross and a critically acclaimed book by Mara Shalhoup and now, the story of the drug dealing crew is coming to the big screen.
Award winning Producer/director James DuBose is currently working on his first feature film, “B.M.F.”
Rep’s for DuBose told AllHipHop.com that the flick will center around the life story of Demetrius “Big Meech” Flenory.
Flenory and his brother Terry “Southwest T” Flenory were both sentenced to 25-30 years in prison in 2007, for their role in leading BMF, which distributed thousands of kilos of cocaine around the country, earning over an estimated $270 million in the process.
According to DuBose, who produced the BET reality series Trey Songz: My Moment, The Michael Vick Project, Monica’s Still Standing and Tiny & Toya, he has learned to appreciate Big Meech as a “mathematical genius.”
In related news, James DuBose, an alumnus of Wake Forest University, will return to campus tomorrow (November 18th) to encourage the student body during the “Journey to Success Speaker Series.”
The speaking engagement is part of DuBose’s Entrepreneurial Nationwide College Tour, which is slated to take place throughout February and March.
During the tour, DuBose and a revolving panel of film, television and music executives will speak to students to inspire their creativity and entrepreneurial desires.
In 2011, DuBose will introduce his newest reality show “Young Moguls” starring Sean “Diddy” Combs’ son Christian Combs and a different, scripted kids show starring Diggy Simmons.
A release date for the B.M.F. movie was not available as of press time.
