Rita Marley wants Lauryn Hill to play her in the first-ever biopic about her late-husband, the legendary Bob Marley.

"Lauryn would be ideal [to play me]," said Marley, who is executive producing the big-screen version of her 2004 autobiography "No Woman No Cry: My Life With Bob Marley." "She sees my life as her
 life."

Producers call the tale an "epic romance," detailing Marley's life and the attempted assassination of the couple. The singer bore 13 children, including some from extramarital affairs.

Should be quite interesting! Just hope Lauryn can get her head together to make this happen. We all saw her in "Sister Act." She got a lil' sumpin.'

Side note: Rita wants her grandson, Stefan, to be one of two actors who will portray Bob.
