Stop, collaborate and listen. Our second favorite Franco, Dave, is set to portray one of music’s most iconic players in an upcoming biopic.
Dave Franco is planning to take on Vanilla Ice in an upcoming biopic, largely centering around the star’s massive hit “Ice, Ice, Baby” his astronomical ascent to fame, and his careening fall after the plagiarism suit against Queen left him a pop culture washout.
“We have been in development for a while but we are inching closer and closer to preproduction,” Franco says. And he’s already had a few calls with Vanilla Ice himself, real name Rob Van Winkle, to prepare for the role.
“Rob is such a sweet and intelligent guy and he’s been super helpful in the process of getting all the details correct and making us privy to information the public doesn’t know,” Franco says. “Just talking to him I can’t help but think about the rabbit holes I’m going to go down to get ready for the role.”
