It’s been a few weeks since the ladies of Xscape announced their long awaited reunion to coincide with the 25th anniversary of their debut single and album.

Now the ladies are opening up more on what fans can expect from them in the coming weeks and months. For starters, the ladies are working on an official biopic that will detail their rise to fame, tensions within the group and more.

As previously speculated, the ladies are working with Mona Scott Young via her Monami Entertainment, is executive producing an official, authorized Xscape biopic featuring the group’s original members, Kandi Burruss-Tucker, Tameka “Tiny” Harris, and sisters LaTocha and Tamika Scott.

According to Deadline, the ladies are currently shopping the biopic to networks to secure a deal, and also working on their reality show to chronicle their reunion which will include touring, and possibly releasing new music.

The ladies have recently spoken out against a planned TV One biopic that the network is producing on the ladies without their blessing. The group says that film is not authorized, calling it “disrespectful and disappointing.”

“We are excited to join forces with Mona Scott-Young and Monami Entertainment to bring the real Xscape story to the world,” said Xscape in a statement. “This partnership will allow us to tell our story about our lives the way we lived it. It’s our truth about the rise, the fall, and the return of Xscape. We feel the recent announcement of an unauthorized biopic on our lives is disrespectful and disappointing. We are not, in any way, participating in that project and it will never ‘represent’ our true story.”

Tiny also revealed on this week’s episode of her reality show ‘Family Hustle,’ that the ladies are trying to secure a deal to go on tour with New Edition and secure management via their longtime creative director and friend, Brooke Payne.
