Mathew Knowles, father and former manager of Beyoncé, has big plans for the girl group his daughter was once a part of. In an interview with Huffington Post, the stage dad reminds the public that, contractually, he still manages projects related to the super successful Destiny's Child.

He added, "I'm hopeful that within the next two or three years we'll see something major come from it." More specifically, this entails a new album, a tour, as well as a TV and/or movie deal. The icing on the cake, though, is Matthew's announcement of his second book. While his first book is about the ten traits all successful people have, his second will be the Destiny's Child "autobiography." He told Huffington Post:

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.

Yes, you read that correctly, Mathew Knowles is writing someone else's autobiography.
