Old school rap fans will soon get a chance to see the lives of Run-DMC as a musical! Producer Paula Wagner, she’s worked with Tom Cruise in the past on Mission: Impossible and other movies, has signed up to turn Run-DMC’s story into a new and original musical.
According to reports, Wagner is meeting with Joseph Simmons, “Rev Run“, and Darryl McDaniels, “DMC“, this week in NYC to check out some of the current musical shows on Broadway and observe the competition.
Wagner reveals, “I feel their story lends itself perfectly to the stage. This project has been a passion of mine for some time and I couldn’t be more thrilled to be working with them.”
The production will also include the life of Jam-Master Jay who was killed back in 2002.
As for Wagner, she feels Run-DMC was the first rap group to really influence music in America and with the help of her new production company she wants everyone to watch their “inspirational” story.
