Future To Produce "Super Fly", A Remake Of The Film

The only game you know is do or die.

The future is the expansion of your business and make your way in Hollywood. The Freebandz founder has joined the production team behind a remake of the 1972 Blaxploitation film Super Fly, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

Jason Mitchell, who painted the portrait of Eazy-E in N. W. A biopic Straight Outta Compton, has been cast in the film. The Director of X, which is directed videos for many of Hip Hop's biggest acts such as Kendrick Lamar and Drake, has been hired to direct.

"Great things!" X wrote on Tuesday (16 January), along with a photo of the cast and crew. "Proud to announce that I will be leading the remix of the cult classic of the 70's @SuperflyMovie with veteran film producer, Joel Silver, and @Future #Superfly."

Superfly is best known for its iconic soundtrack, which was designed by Curtis Mayfield. The soul legend album was one of the few soundtracks in the history to outgross its film, reaching #1 on the Billboard 200. Two singles from the album, "Freddie's Dead" and the title track, also reached the Top 5 of the Billboard Hot 100.
