Future To Produce Sony’s “Superfly” Movie Remake
Future has been keeping busy promoting his Super Slimey project with Young Thug and now he adds film production to his resume after news of him joining the roster for Sony’s Superfly remake has surfaced.
The Atlanta rapper will be working alongside Director X, Trevor Jackson, Jason Mitchell, Lex Scott Davis, Andrea Londo, Jacob Ming-Trent, and Omar Chapparo to put a modern spin on the classic Superfly film which follows a high profile drug dealer trying to score his last bag before quitting the game.
Director X had this to say about the film:
“When I went back and watched the original, I was struck by how relevant the themes are. The pursuit of the American Dream is eternal – everyone’s always on the hustle, because you’ve got to be… and Superfly is about pulling off the ultimate hustle to get out of the game. Our goal is to make it modern – to make a movie where the style, the art direction, the camera movements are all part of what makes the movie Superfly. With this film, my goal is to honor the lineage of an iconic title that the community has loved for decades. I want to honor it in a way that shows a new generation how black culture continues to be a catalyst for new trends in every area, from fashion to music. I’m also excited to be working with Future, both on the music and as a producer of the film – the original soundtrack is legendary, and that’s an inspiration for the artists that Future is working with to bring a singular modern musical vision to the film.”
Although there is no official release date for Superfly, expect more information including the possible addition of 21 Savage to come soon.
