It seems that Keke Palmer will be playing Kandi Burruss in the upcoming Xscape biopic that is due out later this year.
In late 2017, Kandi and the other Xscape divas confirmed that they had plans to take matters into their own hands and release their own made-for-TV movie.
The band said at the time: “…for us to tell our story about our lives the way we lived it. It is our truth about the rise, the fall, and the return of Xscape. We feel the 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 and real true story.”
The Real Housewives of Atlanta star had mentioned that she would love to have Destiny Ryan from the TV show Star play her.
While Riley Burruss would be perfect to play her mother, she might be too young for some of the scenes.
Oddly enough, Keke, who is currently on Star, has been sharing Kandi-related videos hinting that she either got the role or she wants it.
Keke is the complete package — actress, singer, songwriter, and presenter and she has over a hundred films and TV series — under her belt.
She starred in Akeelah and the Bee, Madea’s Family Reunion, Scream Queens, and CrazySexyCool: The TLC Story.
One fan said: “Looool I’m just commenting again because I cannot stop watching this…I’m back, we need to talk lol. I have been in love with you since jump in. I never knew that was Kandi downloading now!!!! This still my song to this day. I play it like every day. Lmao. Is it bad that I am turned on by this? She looks good doing it and looks like a young Kandi, but she just needs to brush that extra white tongue of hers.lol.”
Another commenter explained: “I love how much fun she has to live her Best Life!!! You better get it, she would play Kandi well. I use to sing this song all the time and not realizing it was Kandi I also didn’t realize it was Kandi singing that song with T-Pain lol.”
A third supporter wrote: “This used to be my bop @kandi I have I always loved you, girl, you are such a talented songwriter. I use to be in my room just like this to that song. She must be the one playing Kandi in the Xscape movie. I am so mad at myself for forgetting about this song and forgetting this was Kandi this was my jammmmmm!!!!!!”
Do you think Keke fits the role?
