GET ON UP
“The film is starring Chadwick Boseman as James Brown. Based on the incredible life story of the Godfather of Soul, the film will give a fearless look inside the music, moves and moods of Brown, taking audiences on the journey from his impoverished childhood to his evolution into one of the most influential figures of the 20th century.”
And there’s also a first official poster:
The James Brown story.
From the director of The Help.
Not really fan of Chadwick Boseman, and I can’t say that am fond of James Brown’s songs, but since it’s directed by Tate Taylor (who helmed The Help) and since it is also starring Viola Davis (she’s damn great actress, loved her amazing performance in The Help!), I’ll give it a try.
Release date: August 1, 2014.
