Jay-Z shared: “The Overbrook Entertainment family and I have a unified vision. We’ve already produced a Tony Award-winning play and we’re developing a true superstar in Willow. This venture into film development and production is a perfect next step with teams that are accomplished, creative, and innovative.”
According to Paste Magazine:
The film, which is intended to serve as a launchpad for hair-whipping Willow Smith, will be a joint production venture for Will Smith, his wife Jada Pinkett-Smith, and Jay-Z….The script will be written by Emma Thompson, who co-stars with Smith in the upcoming Men in Black III. No release has been set for the forthcoming film.
With the release of the “ghetto anthem” Hard Knock Life it’s no surprise Jigga will contribute on the music end.
