    SOHH spoke with Run-D.M.C.'s DMC about the band's in-the-works biopic. However, the movie plans are secondary, as the legendary hip-hop group is focusing on getting the project on Broadway first. Nothing like being ambitious, huh? The band certainly blew the doors open for the hip-hop genre, so their story certainly needs to be told and explored in these mediums.

    "Before we do the film, we're taking the story to Broadway," DMC told SOHH. "We grew up big time. So when we do stuff, we gotta do it big. Yeah. We're in discussions right now. We're over halfway there. It's a strong possibility that we will be taking the Run-DMC to Broadway. Then after we do the play, we'll do the picture. We want to do Broadway first."

    Would you go see the story of Run-DMC on Broadway? What about on the silver screen?
