Mathew Knowles recently sat down with the Wall Street Journal for an exclusive interview and discussed his plans to do a biopic about Destiny’s Child.

Emails emerged last month amid the Sony hack, revealing that Beyoncé’s father and former manager tried reaching out to Sony in December 2013 regarding the rights to a biopic about Destiny’s Child.

Knowles confirmed he still wants to get a Destiny’s Childs biopic made and that he wants to have all the members involved.

“Their story, which starts when they were nine or 10 years old in Houston, it’s a story that really engages you. It talks about their challenges, their successes, their failures,” Knowles said. “One of the great aspects of a Destiny’s Child movie … is the empowerment of the songs and the empowerment that Destiny’s Child has given to women… I would also want the ladies of Destiny’s Child to be involved and engaged with it and get their support. That would be important as well. That story is very special to us and we want to make sure and ensure that we get the right screenwriter, that we build the right team around it and that we have the right network.”

The 63-year-old music executive also said that despite what many people think, he still manages Destiny’s Child and hinted at a future album.

“Most people don’t know that I still officially manage Destiny’s Child. Destiny’s Child…some people use the words ‘broke up.’ Destiny’s Child has never broken up officially. So don’t be surprised one day if there’s a new record or a tour because the group never officially broke up.”
