[Movies] First Photo Of Chadwick Boseman As James Brown In Get On Up
Posted by Joseph Lee on 01.11.2014



Entertainment Weekly has posted the first photo of Chadwick Boseman as James Brown in the biopic Get On up, the second film from director Tate Taylor (The Help).

Taylor said of the film: "As I dug in and started to discover more about him, the good and the bad, I loved the reasons he was often bad and I loved the reasons he was good. I love that he would stop at nothing to keep reinventing himself so he could stay current, and as a result he changed music."

He also commented on Boseman's performance as Brown, after he previously played Jackie Robinson in 42.

Taylor added: "Jackie has left the building, we'll just say that. Oh my god, Chad's having so much fun."

For the musical numbers, Taylor used Boseman's own voice and an overlay of Brown's actual voice. The rest of the cast includes Viola Davis and Octavia Spencer, who play Brown's mother and aunt (who runs a brothel) respectively. Jill Scott plays Brown's wife Edie. The film is shooting now in Mississippi and will be released on August 1.
