Big Daddy Kane is moving into the business side of the film world and has signed on as one of the executive producers of the forthcoming Juice Crew bio film The Vapors.

"I got a call from Marley Marl one day and he and some people was trying to get this film together," Big Daddy Kane told AllHipHop.com. "Now we finally got it happening and I got involved. Now it seems like itís very realistic and itís actually gonna happen in the next two months."

A character driven story inspired by the true life events of DJ Marley Marl, Biz Markie, Big Daddy Kane and Roxanne Shante, The Vapors chronicles the early days of the legendary Juice Crew rap collective.

While filming was scheduled to begin in January, casting is still underway for the majority of parts in the film, casting director Red Sable said.



"We have four principals confirmed," Sable revealed. "Clifton Powell, who will be playing Mr. Magic; Keke Palmer as Roxanne Shante; Evan Ross as MC Shan; and Cuba Gooding, Jr. as Marley Marl. All other roles are still under negotiation." A number of other rappers and actors have been linked to the film, including Idris Elba .

David Banner was once rumored to be taking on the role of Biz Markie in the film, but denied the rapper told AllHipHop.com that a scheduling conflict prevented him from taking the part. Big Daddy Kane, who will be played by Jackie Long, is also gearing up for a run in front of the camera in the romantic comedy Love For Sale.

In addition to Long and Powell, singer Mya, former child star Jason Weaver, Melissa Ford, and comedian Shawty Shawty will star in Love For Sale, which is being directed by syndicated talk show host Russ Parr.


The movie is currently in post production and is due out later this year. Big Daddy Kane also starred in 2007ís Dead Heist, as one of four friends whose plan to pull off the perfect small town bank robbery is foiled by zombie vampires.
