The original group members were singer Tionne "T-Boz" Watkins, rapper Lisa "Left Eye" Lopes and singer Rozonda "Chilli" Thomas. Left Eye passed away in 2002 due to a car accident. TLC was known as the girl group who were not afraid to push the limits. The limits were pushed through their crazy outfits and their explicit song lyrics.
The cast for the movie has finally been pick and will consist of rapper and (VMA stage crasher) Lil Mama as Left Eye, Keke Palmer as Chilli and actress Drew Sidora (The Game) as T-Boz.
T-Boz and Chilli stated they did not want well known actress portraying them in the film and perferred if the cast members were well known but not to big.
I ADORE TLC, they were the first girl group I obsessed over. Before their was Destiny's Child there was TLC. I remember growing up me, my sister, my god sister Mekia, and extended cousin Robyn played TLC and we always fought over who would play which group member.
One of the first sexual songs I listened to when I was younger was TLC's RED LIGHT SPECIAL. I was so curious as a young girl and really wanted to know what was the true meaning of this song. I eventually found out and to this day it's still a favorite song of mines. I am excited for the bio pic and can't wait to see what these fabulous ladies bring to the big screen, especially (Lil Mama) she better bring it or else the critics are going to eat her ALIVE.
Kate Lanier of “Glitter” fame wrote the script and Charles Stone III (“Drumline”) will be directing the biopic. No word on release the release date, so in the mean time we will now have to wait.
