Lady killer Cee Lo Green has been cast as the dad of Wu-Tang rapper Raekwon in an upcoming biopic entitled C.R.E.A.M. , after the 1993 Wu-Tang single.

Raekwon has been putting together the biopic himself, and is apparently almost ready to go into production, having told XXL Magazine that both the script and casting are nearing completion.

Although Raekwon hasn’t confirmed a location or start for filming, he is optimistic about the project, telling XXL “We’re definitely going for the theaters,” he said. “The people that are gonna be involved with it definitely feel like it’s a great picture, and there’s a definite possibility it’s a Lions Gate film.”
