Rapper LIL MAMA is the unlikely inspiration for a big-screen reinterpretation of JANE AUSTEN's classic novel EMMA.
Austen's 1816 book will be re-worked into a contemporary urban tale featuring strong hip-hop influences by production company Screen Gems.
The company's CEO Clint Culpepper reportedly came up with the idea, after seeing the video for Lil Mama's hit single Lipgloss last year (07).
The film will be renamed Emme and set in a U.S. high school, according to
Austen's Emma also served as the inspiration for popular 1995 movie Clueless.
