Mac Miller’s Family Declines Offer for Documentary On His Life
Late rapper Mac Miller‘s story may or may not be making a big screen appearance soon. Canadian filmmaker CJ Wallis of Fortypfps Films announced plans for a documentary about the life, death, and music of Mac in a now-deleted tweet. He said:
“@fortyfps So, over the next year I’m going to start collecting interviews & content to make the definitive @MacMiller documentary for his family, friends & fans…Please share & tag anyone you think we need to speak with! #birdseyeview #ripmac”
He’s now retracting the premature announcement, revealing that Mac Miller’s family decided they weren’t quite ready to move forward with the project. He said:
“We tweeted our intentions to begin developing a doc on Mac over the next year. At the same time, we reached out to all those closest to him to begin the process of making it official. We heard back from @christianclancy & The Estate who said the family has requested we hold off on the project at this time. We immediately compiled as the last thing we’d want is to negatively impact anyone involved, quite the opposite.”
He continued, noting that they hope to move forward with his story at a later time.
Mac Miller’s death shocked the hip hop world last September. According to the Los Angeles County Coroner’s Office, he died of an accidental overdose of fentanyl and cocaine. He often rapped about his struggles with substance abuse.
