- Mac Miller’s brother Miller McCormick was furious after studying.
- The new film with Machine Gun Kelly is dubbed Good News, the rapper’s first posthumous single later.
The film is directed and written by Tim Sutton and stars MGK as a fighting musician based on the life of the late rappers Pop Smoke, Lil Peep, Mac Miller, and Juice WRLD. McCormick posted his annoyance on Instagram on Wednesday, June 30, asking them to “at least change the title,” a request that didn’t appear to be ignored. Shortly after the reaction, the producers of Good News issued a statement promising to change the film’s name.
“Our film is about a fictional musician on the rise with a difficult life,” the statement said. “This is in no way a biography or based on the real-life of an artist. We found the title, created as a tribute to Mac Miller and other artists who left early, to feel disrespectful.
“We’ve heard from a lot of people on social media who found the title offensive, so we didn’t hesitate to change it.” Production on the untitled film will begin on July 8 in Los Angeles. Jib Polhemus will co-produce with Rivulet Media Film President Rob Paris and Chief Operating Officer Mike Wieder.
“Colson Baker [Machine Gun Kelly] is a rare talent who grew up very quickly in both film and music,” Paris told MGK. “He’s exactly the artist Rivulet Media wanted to work with, and we couldn’t support him on both sides.
Especially with Tim Sutton’s strong script and vision that resonated with Colson’s great skills.” Asking them to “at most insufficient change the title,” a question that didn’t surface to be neglected. Presently after the regression, the generators of Good News assigned a statement promising to change the film’s name.
