Milli Vanilli Documentary In Production
Milli Vanilli took the world by storm in 1989 and in one year came crashing down as hard as they rose to fame. Now a new tell-all documentary is finally in the works.
Milli Vanilli was a German-French R&B duo founded in Munich, Germany in 1988 consisting of Fab Morvan and Rob Pilatus. Their debut album Girl You Know It's True was hailed by critcs and fans alike. It sold over 6 million copies in the United States as it spent seven weeks as the number 1 album on the Billboard Hot 200 chart, it also pent 41 weeks within the top 10 of the Billboard Top 200 and 78 weeks within the charts overall in 1989. The duo won the Grammy Award for Best New Artist in 1990.
Everything started falling apart in late 1990 as Morvan and Pilatus started pushing back against their record label and producer about not being able to sing on their records. They threatened to quit the group but they were signed to a three record deal. They finally convinced their producer Frank Farian to come forward and announce that the suspicions were true, Milli Vanilli lip-synced and didn't really use their own voices on their songs.
The new documentary will feature never-seen-before footage and interview with the people who actually sung on the Milli Vanilli album. Fab will give the documentary crew exclusive access to tell his story.
There's no word currently on when production will be finished or when/where the documentary will be released. I can only hope this leads to a Milli Vanilli movie.
