A novel called Hold My Gold: A White Girl’s Guide to the Hip-Hop World written by Albertina Rizzo and Amanda McCall is being turned into a movie, Deadline reports.
The film is being described as a Dummies how-to guide to making it into the music business. It’s based on an A&R who thinks he can turn anyone into a superstar after being challenged by the head of his label.
Jennifer Kaytin Robinson, creator and co-executive producer of MTV’s new series Sweet/Vicious, is slated to spearhead the script and executive produce the project. Once the script is finalized, Gold Circle is slated to produce and finance the movie.
Once news spread of the movie’s plot and title, Twitter cried foul.
Check out a few reaction tweets to Deadline’s announcement of the film below.
