Lil Yachty is creating an Motion Heist movie primarily based on that
Lil Yachty is about to take the game we all know and love, Uno, to a whole new level. According to Variety, Yachty is planning to develop an action heist comedy based on the classic game with Mattel Films. Marcy Kelly, best known as the writer of the hit film “Mean Girls,” wrote the script for the film in the underground hip-hop world of Atlanta. The cast has not yet been announced, but Lil Yachty is wanted to find the lead actor. Lil Yachty said, “I’m very excited to be part of this movie with Mattel. I played ‘Uno’ as a kid and I still do it today. So there is something special about making a movie out of that based on the Atlanta hip hop scene that I came from. It hits me near me. “
If Yachty is cast in the role, it won’t be his first time on the big screen. In 2019 he starred alongside DC Young Fly in “How High 2”. He has also acted in several other films. In addition to Yachty, Mattel Films will be producing the film with Quality Control’s Kevin “Coach K” Lee, Pierre “P” Thomas and Quality Films’ Brian Sher. Robbie Brenner will serve as executive producer and Kevin McKeon will serve as executive producer and lead the project for Mattel Films.
Commenting on the film, Robbie said, “At Mattel Films, we want to explore stories that bring our brands to life in unexpected ways. ‘Uno’ is a game that crosses generations and cultures, and we look forward to working with Lil Yachty, as well as Coach, P and Brian Sher, to turn the classic Uno game into a comedic action adventure. “
It’s amazing how Uno was started in a barber shop in Cincinnati in the 1970s so families could hang out together. Now, five decades later, the game is still popular and becoming a movie! Roommate, are you hype for that?
