Rita Marley to produce the first ever Bob Marley biopic

Rita MarleyRita Marley is set to produce the first ever biopic on her late husband Bob Marley.

The movie about the reggae icon will be based on Rita's 2004 autobiography 'No Woman No Cry: My Life with Bob Marley," according to U.S reports.

And if Rita has her way, former Fugees star Lauryn Hill, Marley's own daughter-in-law, will play her in the movie, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

Rita and Bob Marley were married for 15-years before he died of cancer in 1981.

"Lauryn would be ideal. She sees my life as her life," Marley said.

The movie project will be filmed in Jamaica early next year and is set for release in late 2009.

Hollywood legend Martin Scorsese is also working on an authorized biopic, which will be released on Marley's 65 th birthday on February 6 2010.
