According to, Cheo Hodari Coker, screenwriter for "Notorious," the Notorious B.I.G. biopic, will be adding another Hip-Hop movie to his resume.

The writer is attached to adapt a film for legendary rap group Run-D.M.C. from Bill Adler's "Tougher Than Leather: The Rise of Run-DMC -- The Authorized Biography," reports

The movie will be made on DJ Classicz, the urban division of Davis Entertainment.

"It's an extraordinary rags-to-riches journey that I'm eager to bring to the screen," sauid Dallas Jackson, president of DJ Classicz. "And I'm hoping to have Run, DMC and Russell Simmons' involvement. This will be a big movie about the 1980s Hip Hop movement that took over the world."

Run-D.M.C. is known for their success of platinum albums and numerous hits such as "It's Like That," "King of Rock," and "It's Tricky." The group is also known for their praises such as Grammy nominations and, most recently, a nod for the 2009 inductee at the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.

Coker recently signed on to write the Imagine/Universal project "Lowriders."
