Ron Howard to make Jay-Z movie

29 August 2012

Jay-Z is set to conquer the big screen, thanks to Ron Howard.

The Oscar-winning filmmaker has revealed that he is making a documentary film about the Empire State Of Mind rapper, which he plans to shoot at the Budweiser Made In America music festival in Philadelphia, reported Deadline.

"This will not be a concert film; it's a reflection of the fabric of what it means to be Made In America - what the festival represents, why Jay is doing it and how he relates to each artist," the director said.

Jay-Z - whose real name is Shawn Carter - will headline the two-day festival on September 1 alongside Skrillex, Miike Snow, Janelle Monae and Calvin Harris, while Pearl Jam will play on September 2 with Drake, Run-DMC, Chris Cornell and Rita Ora.

The 42-year-old hip-hop star, who has a seven-month old daughter Blue Ivy with wife Beyonce, will also be an executive producer on the film, which is expected to be released in 2013.

The Jay-Z film follows the release of Ice-T's The Art Of Rap, which featured interviews with hip-hop heavyweights such as Wu-Tang Clan's Raekwon and Ghostface Killah, Public Enemy's Chuck D and Grandmaster 'Melle Mel' Flash.
