when i was first learning about who i was,
i was told to read the book “b-boy blues” by james earl hardy.
i was around the time i discorvered e lynn harris as well.
for the life of me,
i can’t remember what “b-boy blues” is about like i can with e lynn’s books,
but i know it was a fantasy i wish came to life.
jussie smollett wants to bring that fantasy to the big screen…
Jussie Smollett is preparing his feature directorial debut with B-Boy Blues, an adaptation of James Earl Hardy’s classic 1994 novel.
The film will go into production on Oct. 17 in New York City. The musician and former Empire actor has previously directed two episodes of the Fox series and several music videos.
Smollett’s recently-formed SuperMassive Movies, an ancillary label of his Story Worthy Pictures banner, will produce. Per the company, SuperMassive has raised “mid-seven figures” in a partnership with Cleveland-based investor Tom Wilson to finance small-budget films from minority filmmakers.
Smollett will produce the film alongside author Hardy, investor Wilson, Frank Gatson, Sampson McCormick and Madia Hill Scott.
this is a big look.
this is a good move for his comeback.
i like that he is keeping lowkey and staying bts for a while.
i’m gonna be honest and font his reputation is still trash,
but if he can direct and produce some good movies,
i can see a jussie comeback in the cards.
i can’t wait to see how this goes tho.
i’m sure they’ll do this book justice.
lowkey: jussie was involved in “giants”.
you know how obsessed i was with that.
( x recap it here )
i know he is gonna bring up some quality programming.
