4 hours ago | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Musical biopics are notoriously difficult to make, usually because it involves getting tangled web of parties — the artist’s estate, music rights holders, and more — to all get on the same creative page.

Brown also documented what she said was years of abuse at his hands. Simpson was acquitted of the killings in his criminal trial, but found responsible for them in a civil trial. Simpson’s case Thursday was unrelated to the murders, though many believe he received a harsher sentence on his current robbery case because of the widespread. »
