Film to be made on MTV history

Los Angeles: Filmmaker Brett Ratner is nearing a deal to make a feature film revolving around MTV`s rise in power and popularity throughout the 1980s and 1990s.

The `Tower Heist` maker will direct a big screen take on a non-fiction book by Craig Marks and Rob Tannenbaum called `I Want My MTV: The Uncensored Story of the Music Video Revolution`, reported Ace Showbiz.

`I Want My MTV` itself is an oral history of the music network that focuses on its growth in the first decade after it was established in the 1980s.

Jody Lambert will co-produce it along with Ratner. In addition to producing the forthcoming MTV movie, Ratner is set to direct `Hercules (2014)`.

The forthcoming Greek myth film, which will be based on Steve Moore`s graphic novel `Hercules: The Thracian War`, has Dwayne Johnson as the leading man.
