Director CJ Wallis has confirmed that he is making a documentary about the life of late rapper Mac Miller. Wallis is making the film with his own production company, Magrette Bird Pictures, and has confirmed via Twitter that he's looking for suggestions for people to speak on camera.

“So, over the next year I’m going to start collecting interviews & content to make the definitive @MacMiller documentary for his family, friends & fans,” Wallis posted Monday morning in a since-deleted tweet. "Please share & tag anyone you think we need to speak with!"

Deadline describes Wallis is a "writer, editor, animator, visual designer and director." He has worked extensively with Curren$y and holds the position of creative director at his Jet Life label.

Miller died in September 2018 following an accidental overdose of cocaine, alcohol, and fentanyl, according to a report from the Los Angeles Coroner's Office. He received a posthumous Grammy nomination for his final album Swimming at this year's Grammys.
