There have been many celebrities to have biopics about their lives, but it seems as though musicians aren’t on the top of that list. Well, yes there are my two favorites Jackson 5 and The Temptations and recently TLC, but not many biopics about African American artists have been created/released/etc. Andre 3000 will be starring in the Jimi Hendrix biopic, ‘All Is By My Side’, and now there will be a James Brown Biopic titled, ‘Get on Up’.
Actor and star of ’42,’ Chadwick Boseman, will be starring as James Brown. The movie will also feature: Nelsan Ellis,Tika Sumpter, Octavia Spencer, Viola Davis and Dan Aykroyd.The movie will hit theaters August 1st and was directed by The Help director Tate Taylor.
