    Soul singer Bobby Womack died earlier this year but his memory will remain – cue the Metallica song! But in all seriousness, his memory will remain especially since his longtime tour manager and friend Don Smalls is working on a biopic about Womack.

    Smalls is in possession of a 120-page script that Womack approved before his death, as well. So it has Womack's "yes," so to speak.

    "There has been talk of Mos Def and Samuel L. Jackson, but we're also interested in casting an unknown," Smalls told WENN about the people he thinks can play the musician. "I think with the right producer and director, this could be a real blockbuster."

    True dat!

    Would you see this film? Who should play Bobby Womack?
