Milli Vanilli Biopic Cast Revealed in First Photos

The first photos from the Milli Vanilli Girl You Know It’s True biopic have been released.

Directed by Simon Verhoeven, Girl You Know It’s True follows the story of the duo Fabrice Morvan and Rob Pilatus, who, after achieving international success as Milli Vanilli in the late 1980s, were scandalized when it was discovered that they did not sing in any one of his songs.

Newcomers Tijan Njie and Elan Ben Ali will play Pilatus and Morvan, respectively, in the biopic, while German music producer Frank Farian (pictured at Deadline) will be played by Matthias Schweighöfer.

Other cast members include Graham Rogers as Todd, Milli Vanilli’s assistant in America, and Bella Dayne as Milli, known as Farian’s right-hand woman. The executive producers of the project are Quirin Berg and Max Wiedemann.

The film is named after the group’s 1989 debut album, which won them a Grammy for best new artist in 1990. However, following the lip-sync scandal, the academy revoked the award later that year .

The group planned to release a comeback album titled Back And In Attack, but its release was canceled after Pilatus’ death in April 1998. He was found dead in a hotel room near Frankfurt after an accidental overdose of alcohol and medication.

Speaking on Oprah Winfrey’s Where Are They Now in 2013, Morvan said, “It was hard to lose everything in public. You don’t know who you’re going to affect because there’s no one around you, you’re in alone. We were famous now. ’tis infamous.” no more”.

Filming will take place in Munich, Berlin, Cape Town and Los Angeles, with production expected to wrap in December. The date of the performance has not yet been announced.
