“Get On Up,” the James Brown biopic is set for U.S. release on Aug. 1.
“42″ star Chadwick Boseman portrays the Godfather of Soul in the film that recounts his impoverished childhood, time in prison and ascendancy to super-stardom. The story also follows Brown’s mother, played by Viola Davis, who abandoned him at age 6, and his aunt (played by Octavia Spencer), who raised him in a brothel.
Mick Jagger (and Victoria Pearman) are producing under their Jagged Films banner.
This looks amazing:
