Caron Butler Says His Biopic Will Be Like 'The Wire' ... NBA Style

EXCLUSIVE

Big news from Caron Butler on his Mark Wahlberg-produced biopic -- a director has been chosen to lead the project and the script-writing process is underway.

We got Caron leaving a meeting with script writers ... and he told us the flick (which is in the early writing stages) is gonna show the REAL story behind his childhood struggles as a drug dealer.

C.B. says Wahlberg (as well as director Jason Lew and writer Steve Springer) is helping him be a part of the whole process to make sure it gets his stamp of approval.

Butler's partner, Tabrez Yousuf, summarized the movie's vision in one sentence:

"Marlo Stanfield from 'The Wire' goes to the NBA."
