Lil Yachty-Produced ‘Uno’ Heist Movie Set in Atlanta Hip-Hop Scene Is Going in a Different Direction

The “Poland” artist previously said the ATL-set film “hits close to home for me.” Mattel is developing a total of 45 features based on its toys and games.

The Barbie purveyors at Mattel Films appear to be reshuffling the deck with their feature based on the card game Uno.

According to Alex Barasch of the New Yorker, Marcy Kelly—described as “Mattel’s de-facto screenwriter and punch-up artist”—set her first draft “in Atlanta’s hip-hop scene.”

If that sounds familiar, in early 2021 Lil Yachty was linked to an Uno movie reported to revolve around ATL rap and a heist. The “Poland” artist was set to produce “with an eye to star,” the Hollywood Reporter shared at the time. Yachty went so far as to issue a statement saying that turning the game he loves “into a movie based on the Atlanta hip-hop scene I came out of is really special. It hits close to home for me.”
