*Beyonce may have cut business ties with her father for her solo work, but Mathew Knowles still manages projects related to Destiny’s Child as a group, and in a recent interview with The Huff Post, Papa Knowles said he’s working on several projects related to DC, and he’s hopeful that the ladies will reunite soon to record an album and tour.

“I am extremely hopeful that the ladies will come back with an album and a tour. I’m working on a few Destiny’s Child projects right now,” he said. “My second book will be the autobiography of Destiny’s Child. I’m talking to the film and TV community right now, regarding a Destiny’s Child movie or TV series of some sort. But I still manage the ladies — Destiny’s Child — and I’m hopeful that within the next two to three years we’ll see something major come from it.”

Matthews said he has some potential names in mind for the film’s cast but he isn’t quite ready to reveal his choices. As The HP reports, leaked emails from last year’s Sony hack revealed Knowles’ had approached the company with an idea for a biopic, which he later told the Wall Street Journal would detail the group’s rise to international fame beginning at the age of “9,10 in Houston.”

In addition to Matthew’s projects, Madame Noire reports that a former manager of the group also has a Destiny’s Child biopic in the works.

Next month, Knowles will release his new book “The DNA of Achievers: 10 Traits of Highly Successful Professionals. The book will offer business advice and strategies to ambitious dreamers, as well as tips for parents on assisting their children in reaching their goals.

“For parents the first thing has to be the dream and passion of the child. There’s a difference between determination and passion, and sometimes people get that confused,” Matthew explained.

“The parents’ role is to give those tools to give their support to whatever that dream is that a child has,” he said. “So this book is to inspire and motivate folks to really dig deep to see if they’re really living their passion every day.”
