Rick James Biopic Coming To Life As A Feature Film, Will It Star Terrence Howard?

Today we discovered that another biopic is in the works as a feature film, and this time the film will be about R&B icon, Rick James. As we all know, James was an extremely popular R&B and funk singer in the late 1970s and 1980s, scoring four #1 hits on the U.S. R&B charts. Among his best-known songs are "Superfreak" and "You and I".

In addition to his music, he gained notoriety for his wild lifestyle: later in life, James' drug abuse led to widely publicized legal problems.

All of this is said to be documented in the upcoming film, and we discovered this news from James' daughter Ty James.

We even heard that there are discussions with actor Terrence Howard (of Hustle & Flow fame) to play the lead role but nothing has been finalized yet. For more information about the film check back here as we will broadcast the entire interview on Humor Mill TV shortly.
