Plans for a Mac Miller documentary have been halted by his estate. Filmmaker C.J. Wallis detailed plans to begin work on a film commemorating the life of the late Pittsburgh rapper on Monday, but less than 24 hours later, the director said the family wanted the doc scrapped for now.
"We heard back from @christianclancy & The Estate who said the family has requested we hold off on the project at this time," Wallis tweeted Tuesday (June 4). "We immediately complied as the last thing we'd want is to negatively impact anyone involved, quite the opposite."
The Perfect Bid director says that instead of telling the Swimming artist's life story, he would have had those closest to him tell their favorite Mac story, and then put everything together to form a "motivational and positive picture."
