Spike Lee to Direct Film on James Brown

James Brown may have passed away this week but his friends and fans are making sure that his memory lives on. Spike Lee has just signed on with Paramount Pictures to direct a film about the Godfather of Soul. The project is being developed by super producer Brian Grazer (A Beautiful Mind) and will most likely begin shooting in 2008. Brown evidently was working on the project before he died and granted Paramount access to his music rights. James has had a full and fascinating life. We can't wait to see it on the big screen. Until then though, check out our retrospective on the self-proclaimed hardest working man in show business.

I cant wait to see who going to be playing James Brown in the movie. But I agree with JK that they should wait awile before making money off of him.

I really respect his music and what he did for the black entertainers in our culture...But from what I have heard, him as a person he was not so nice. Not everyone should be made into a saint.
