Beyoncé, Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams may not have released a record as Destiny's Child in over a decade, but don't think that means the group is over and done with. Maybe.

Beyoncé's father, Mathew Knowles, spoke to the Huffington Post about the prospects of future projects involving the R&B girl group, and he looks to have a few ideas up his sleeve, among them a possible biopic.

“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. 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."

If a new Destiny's Child album happens, it'll be the group's first since 2004's Destiny Fulfilled, which spawned hits like "Soldier" and "Catch My Breath." A greatest hits album followed in 2005 and featured the song "Stand Up for Love." A reunion of sorts occurred earlier this year, when Beyoncé, Rowland and Williams performed together at the Gospel Music Awards; the former two are featured on the latter's "Say Yes." Earlier, the ladies linked up for Yoncé's 2013 Super Bowl halftime show.

Mathew Knowles was Beyonce's manager until 2011.
