Could MLK be the next iconic role Foxx takes on?
Rumor has it that Jamie Foxx will get into character once more in another highly anticipated biopic. HipHollywood is reporting that a source close to the project says Foxx is in fact in talks to play Martin Luther King Jr. in an upcoming Dreamworks biopic about the civil rights leader’s life, and he’s very excited.
The project will bring the authorized version of King’s life story to life on screen, reports Deadline.com, and Foxx is said to be attached to the project in some way, although it hasn’t been confirmed that he will star.
MLK’s family is behind this biopic, so his copyrighted speeches will also be featured in the film.
