A biopic on the iconic ’90s rap group is in the works.
Good news for fans of the band Supreme NTM : a release date for their biopic has been communicated! This group, originally from Seine-Saint-Denis and composed of JoeyStarr and Kool Shen, marked the history of French rap in the early 90s. The biopic, entitled Supreme, is produced by Audrey Estrougo (You, me, the others, a trivial story…) and Sony Pictures has revealed new photos and a release date. The film will be in theaters on November 24.
Audrey Estrougo wanted to focus on the birth of French rap and the group’s beginnings, from 1988 to their first concert at the Zénith four years later, in 1992. At that time, hip hop, including rap, became a pacifist means of expression in the face of police violence, mainly present in the suburbs. JoeyStarr and Kool Shen quickly assume a role of spokesperson and become the symbol of an entire generation.
At the casting, Theo Christine (Boy Cloth) will take on the role of JoeyStarr and Sandor funtek (K Opposite) that of Kool Shen. We will also find César Chouraqui, Félix Lefebvre and Vini Vivarelli.

Note that in parallel, a series produced by Katell Quillévéré, also on the NTM group, is in preparation.
