Teddy Pendergrass Bio-Pic Starring Tyrese Headed to the Big Screen


For years Tyrese has been promising to produce and star in a Teddy Pendergrass bio pic [click here if you missed that].

The deal is finally done...

From Deadline
Warner Bros Pictures has acquired the life rights of iconic Philadelphia-born R&B singer-songwriter Teddy Pendergrass, a movie project that has Fast & Furious actor Tyrese Gibson set to star in the lead role.
Donald De Line (Ready Player One) will produce via his De Line Pictures studio banner, along with Lee Daniels (Empire, The Butler, Precious), and Gibson via his Voltron Pictures. The studio has also tapped Little Marvin (creator of Amazon’s upcoming event series Them) to pen the screenplay. Pendergrass’ widow, Joan Pendergrass, is an executive producer.




This is the moment we walked out of our “pitch” meeting with Kevin McCormick there was a feeling that the Teddy Pendergrass movie was going to happen....... Warner Bros we are honored to take this journey with you!!!! ( see the link in my bio with the DEADLINE announcement) Honored to take this journey this is a role that I feel I was born to play... Teddy Pendergrass embraced me and before died he put the responsibility on my shoulders to tell his story... So of course being here in this time , space and moment to take this journey with another Philadelphia legend and genius director Lee Daniels, Donald Deline, little Marvin and Kevin McCormick at Warner Bros is an answered prayer all in itself... Teddy I hope we make you, your wife and family proud...: Here we go!!! @littlemarvin @theoriginalbigdaddy @charliemackfirstout here we go!!!!!!!! To Hod be ALL the glory!!!

Tyrese should slay in this and I'm here for it despite his foolery on social media. Is that, that dusty aura ass Lee Daniel. I don't know why he don't get up with some Mexican Shaman's and clean all that psychic filth off him, he has the dustiest aura and spirit I have ever seen, reading his energy just makes me want to vomit. That nigga need to clean off with some chickens, rabbits and racoons, also throw fire in that bitch to spray his ass down and get all those filthy sex demons off his ass. Yuck!!

Cryrese as Teddy Penis-grab?! With Gay ass Fee-Fee Daniels. And we all know there's going to be the dick sucking car scene when he got paralyzed AND the added G.A. meetings( gay anonymous) where Teddy or Tygrese has on a Teddy and admits he gay and cryrese in a love scene with a man. Dammit.
Is this shit going straight to DVD?!

I want to see this but Tyrese has an entirely new image to me now that I know how much of a lil bitch he is. I miss the days when we didn't know just how extra and crazy celebrities are.

This is the project Brother Ty needs that will take him to the next level.

Teddy will do for Ty what " A Star is Born" will do for Lady Gaga

This will be bigger than Black Panther

The Teddy Pendergrass story on Showtime is a must see!
The Tran woman that was in the car with him was post-op NO PENIS. Someone cut the brake line from 2 of his cars and the Rolls Royce he was driving was having problems that night. He was only 31 at the time of the accident.

Tyrese can definitely play Teddy. Just not here for Lee Daniels. Hope he keeps it strictly dickly.

Y'all can keep Tyrese and Daniels for all I care, though I am interested in who will play that evil-ass Harold Melvin who was jealous of the attention Teddy garnered.

@11:54a I was like thats a man OMG where? It really is a must see.

Omg these post are too funny.

Yes...that Showtime documentary is OSCAR WORTHY! And seriously...I haven't seen TOO MANY THANGS FINNA THAN TP IN HIS HEYDAY! I now OVERSTAND why my Mama and Aunties were STANNING for him back in the 70s and 80s...

Tyrese can act...and it looks like ALL of Teddy's people are still alive and kicking...(including his Mama) so...this COULD be great!

Brother Ty's movies have grossed over $2 Billion dollars at the theater.

I think Tyrese will do a good job, EVERYONE NEEDS TO WATCH THE SHOWTIME DOC. The Philly police set Teddy up he had a lawsuit against them. Someone should be in jail for cutting his break line. Why i prolly wont want to watch is Lee Daniels is going to make this some Gay Agenda in the closets issh that's not the case we heard for years, Teddy P was a Mans Man and they cut him down in his prime. I pray they show the real story and not some Gay ass water down version.

All we knew is what was showed to us in EBONY, JET, PEOPLE, ROLLING STONE, VIBE, RIGHT ON, etc. Just shut up and entertsin us..."celebs" of today hawking perfume, clothing, etc cuz they really aren't that talented!!!
