RJ Cyler is being eyed for a role in a film adaption of the story of 2 Live Crew.

The film will be based on book The Book of Luke and will follow 2 Live Crew and its leader Luther Campbell. The film will also examine the legal battle the band had with Roy Orbison over a parody version of Pretty Woman that went all the way to the American Supreme Court and changed the way music was produced with the introduction of sampling as fair use.

RJ Cyler is known for playing the Blue Ranger in the Power Rangers reboot.
