Blackish star Anthony Anderson is headed to Netflix. The actor is poised to star in a hip-hop film for the streaming giant. Per Deadline:
Black-ish star Anthony Anderson has come aboard to star in Netflix’s Beats, a coming-of-age drama set in Chicago’s South Side hip-hop scene. The pic, from Global Road Entertainment and 51 Minds Entertainment, just began filming with The New Edition Story director Chris Robinson helming Miles Orion Feldsott’s original script. A 2019 release is planned
The film will star newcomer Khalil Everage as a musical prodigy who links up with a former music manager, played by Anderson. The Chicago based film will also feature Uzo Aduba, Dave East, and a slew of Chicago-based music producers. Put this on my “must-see list that will end up in my Netflix queue because I don’t have time to watch all of these shows”.
