In an exclusive interview with Insider, Dave Franco gave fans intel about his upcoming role.

The longline for the upcoming movie says "From a high school dropout selling cars in Dallas to having the first hip-hop single to top the Billboard charts with 'Ice Ice Baby,' a young Vanilla Ice struggles with stardom, extortion attempts, and selling out as he makes music history." Franco spoke about where the crew and actors are in terms of preparing the film. He shares:

"We have been in development for a while but we are inching closer and closer to pre-production."

Speaking To Vanilla Ice

Franco has also gotten the chance to speak to Vanilla Ice (Rob Van Winkle) in order to prepare for his role. He says:

"Rob is such a sweet and intelligent guy and he's been super helpful in the process of getting all the details correct and making us privy to information the public doesn't know. Just talking to him I can't help but think about the rabbit holes I'm going to go down to get ready for the role."

In terms of what he hopes for the future of the film, Franco shared that he wants fans to appeal to it as much as they did to The Disaster Artist. He says:

"With that movie, people expected us to make a broad comedy where we make fun of Tommy Wiseau, but the more real we played it, the funnier and heartfelt it was — that's the tone we want for this one as well."

There have been no updates as to when actual production for the film will begin, but we cannot wait to see it already!
