New James Brown Bio-Pic Finds It's Star!!!

The roles just keep on rolling in for Howard Alum, Chadwick Boseman! The actor made his acting debut last year playing the ground breaking Jackie Robinson in the film 42 and now he has been chosen to portray the god father of soul, the late and great James Brown in his bio pic!

The untiled film will begin shooting this fall in Mississippi and will follow the highs and lows of the life of James Brown. According to

"The story charts Brown's rise from a childhood of extreme poverty to six decades of dominance in the music world. "

The movie will be directed by Tate Taylor, who made his directorial debut with Oscar nominated The Help. Brian Grazer and music icon Mick Jagger will be on as producers. 

This is such a big deal for Chadwick Boseman! We can't wait to see him transform into the god father of soul! Hopefully Chadwick can dance because James Brown was legendary for his footwork and soulful personality! That will either make or break the part for him along with his acting skills of course. These truly are some big shoes to fill, but we are sure that he's up for the challenge.
