Mara Brock Akil Reflects on the End of 'The Game,' and That Rumored 'Girlfriends' Movie



A few weeks ago you sent out a tweet that had people thinking you were confirming a Girlfriends movie.
[Laughs] I did not confirm it. I did say this: I want it too. The thing is, whether the public cares or understands, there is a business component to all of this. I remain diligent with CBS Paramount, who owns the rights to Girlfriends. I think if the fans want something to do, they can contact CBS Paramount and let them know that they want that movie, because I want to do it. They know I want to do it; I'm very open to it, but there is a business component so I still stay diligent in convincing them that this is a property that is worth thinking about giving the rights to. Let me be very clear, I haven't been told no. So I guess the real answer is, I remain diligent in trying to get it done. I'm very happy that I did meet with the actors, and all the actors want to do it, last we spoke, so I think if the stars align, we'll get the business component. Then the second part is you've got to go find the money and a studio who believes in that project, and then of course, writing that script, and getting it done. I think it would be great.

Full interview and lots of chat about The game at the source
