Mathew Knowles Discusses Plans For Possible Destiny’s Child Biopic
One interesting thing that the Sony hacks revealed was that Mathew Knowles had been trying to put together a Destiny’s Child biopic. Last week, the showbiz dad sat down with the Wall Street Journal to discuss his plans for the film and a possible Destiny’s Child reunion album.
“Their story, which starts when they were nine or 10 years old in Houston, it’s a story that really engages you. It talks about their challenges, their successes, their failures,” he explained. “One of the great aspects of a Destiny’s Child movie or a play is the empowerment of the songs and the empowerment that Destiny’s Child has given to women.”
In addition to saying that he would “absolutely have to have” creative control to move forward with the biopic, he also explained that he would really like for all of the ladies of Destiny’s Child to partake in production of the film.
“I would also want the ladies of Destiny’s Child to be involved and engaged with it and get their support. That would be important as well. That story is very special to us and we want to make sure and ensure that we get the right screenwriter, that we build the right team around it and that we have the right network.”
Speaking of Destiny’s Child, he also claimed that there could be another album from the group in the future, as he insists that they never actually “broke up.”
“Most people don’t know that I still officially manage Destiny’s Child. Destiny’s Child…some people use the words “broke up.” Destiny’s Child has never broken up officially. So don’t be surprised one day if there’s a new record or a tour because the group never officially broke up.”
Knowles went on to insist that the ladies going solo was all part of his “strategy.” While a new Destiny’s Child album would be lovely, I certainly will not be holding my breath waiting for it.
