Public Enemy to be Turned into Hip-Hop Hollywood Animated Feature?

The rumor mill is starting to churn out a hip-hop movie project that sounds outright batty. It seems that there may be a new cartoon feature based on the seminal hip-hop band Public Enemy—and one that may less cartoonish than Flavor of Love at that.


In May, we will see a graphic novel collection based on the travails of Chuck D. Flava Fav, Terminator X and the Bomb Squad. According to multiple sources, MTV is reporting that “there is a lot of interest from Hollywood” for an animated movie based on Public Enemy.


If it’s anything close to the edginess of The Boondocks animated series, I’ll be watching, but I somehow wonder what kind of plot would circle around a film without Jimmy Cagney about Public Enemy . All this from the band that once recorded “Burn Hollywood Burn” and wrote the greatest hip-hop song ever for a Spike Lee movie.
