Jay-Z is set to produce a new film from The Harder They Fall director Jeymes Samuel called The Book of Clarence starring LaKeith Stanfield and Omar Sy.
TheWrap reports that details about the film are scarce but Samuel will write, direct, produce and compose for the film which will be co-produced by James Lassiter and Tendo Nagenda. This is the second time that Lassiter, Carter and Samuel have collaborated following the 2021 release of The Harder They Fall.
Currently, Oscar-nominated Stanfield is starring in the final season of Atlanta on FX. He's also set to star in Disney's Haunted Mansion. Sy can be seen on Netflix's Lupin, and will also star in the film Shadow Force as well as on Peacock’s The Killer.
As for Jay, he's always busy with new business ventures, including his recent foray into the world of pizza. Earlier this month, it was announced that the rapper/mogul has invested $16.5 million into a soon-to-launch mobile robot-powered pizza restaurant, Stellar Pizza. The founding members include three former SpaceX engineers, Benson Tsai, Brian Langone, and James Wahawisan, who have developed the automated truck service. Stellar Pizza is set to launch this fall at the University of California.
No word as of yet on when The Book of Clarence will arrive.
