A planned documentary about Mac Miller has been stopped by the late rapper’s estate. SPIN reports that filmmaker C.J. Wallis first detailed plans to begin work on a film commemorating the life of the late Pittsburgh rapper on Monday. On Tuesday, however, the director confirmed that Miller’s family wanted the film scrapped. “We heard back from @christianclancy & The Estate who said the family has requested we hold off on the project at this time,” Wallis tweeted. “We immediately complied as the last thing we’d want is to negatively impact anyone involved, quite the opposite.” Wallis says that instead of telling the Swimming artist’s life story, he would have had those closest to him tell their favorite Mac story as part of the film.
