Spike Lee To Direct James Brown Movie

by MWord ·

Director Spike Lee has signed on to helm a movie about James Brown, the late “Godfather of Soul.”

According to Daily Variety, the project will be produced through Viacom Inc.’s Paramount Pictures by Brian Grazer (“A Beautiful Mind”).

Production is slated to begin in 2008.

There has been no word yet on who will portray Brown, but we wouldn’t be surprised if Eddie Murphy was in the running after the surprising performance he put in for Dreamgirls.
