Fan enthusiasm for the forthcoming documentary has been diffused as plans for the Mac Miller release have been halted.

On Monday, documentarian C.J. Wallis detailed plans to begin work on a film commemorating the life of the late Pittsburgh rapper but less than 24 hours later, he announced that Miller’s family wanted to scrap the doc. “We heard back from @christianclancy & The Estate who said the family has requested we hold off on the project at this time,” Wallis tweeted Tuesday. “We immediately complied as the last thing we’d want is to negatively impact anyone involved.”

In a wave of messages, the Perfect Bid director noted that the aim was to piece together clips of Miller’s friends telling their favorite stories about the artist, rather than presenting an entire life story. Everything together would end up forming a “motivational and positive picture.” and he concluded on a positive note with hopes to bring the project to fruition: “The outpouring of support for the doc and that it was us trying to make one was humbling, and in time perhaps we will get to see it through.”

Until a film is released, fans can take comfort in the fact that they have hours of music to remember the late musician by.
