“I’m a producer on a Mac Dre biopic,” Chaney revealed on DMV Spotlight with Mr. Peter Parker. “It’s a two picture film deal about Mac Dre, his life, his music, how he affected the culture of Hip Hop and some of the artists.”
Chaney will also star as Dre’s friend Curtis “Kilo Curt” Nelson, and he says four cast members from The Wire are part of the production as well. While Chaney could not give up who those particular actors are, he does add that Mac Dre’s mother, Wanda Salvatto, has endorsed the project.
Mac Dre (born Andre Hicks) was killed in 2004. He was 34 years old.
