Lifetime has announced that a Salt-N-Pepa Biopic, set to be released in 2020, is currently in production in Toronto.

The production will be three hours in length and will star GG Townson and Laila Odom as Salt and Pepa, respectively.

Townson is best-known for her work on Everybody Hates Chris, while Odom is best known for her roles in The Bobby DeBarge Story and Undercover Brother 2.

The film is an authorized biopic, meaning that both Salt and Pepa have approved the project and are actively involved in production.  It will be directed by iconic New Jack City director Mario Van Peebles.  Queen Latifah is an executive producer on the project.

Lifetime has yet to announce a firm release date for the film
