There will be a biopic about Vanilla Ice! It’s in pre-production, and they just cast their Vanilla Ice. Dave Franco will play the rapper in “To the Extreme,” about Ice, a high school dropout selling cars in Dallas to having the first hip-hop single to top the Billboard charts with “Ice Ice Baby.” A young Vanilla Ice struggles with stardom, extortion attempts and selling out as he makes music history. Production Weekly first reported the news about the project back in 2019. There is no news of a director attachment yet and due to the shutdown brought about by the pandemic, Franco says the project currently has no start date. “We have been in development for a while but we are inching closer and closer to preproduction,” said Franco in an interview published yesterday with Insider.
