Rita Marley Wants Lauryn Hill To Play Her In Biopic
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."
Bob Marley's son Rohan - with former lover Janet Hunt - is married to the Everything Is Everything hitmaker, who has been largely absent from the music scene following her hit 1998 debut solo album The Miseducation Of Lauryn Hill.
The as-yet-untitled project is slated to begin filming early next year.
