9 April 2015 6:53 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

John Singleton had been working on the script for quite some time, and even discussed the project at length on the Oscars red carpet just months ago. But the director recently revealed to Xxl Magazine that the project is on hold. Here's what he had to say in the interview:

"I think the picture is not going to be good unless it's offensive to some people. So, whenever you make a movie, you always have different elements that people have their say about. But when I'm making my movies, John Singleton movies, it's really just my voice. »
