With the upcoming Made In America festival taking place September 1st and 2nd in Philadelphia set to establish Jay-Z as a bona fide festival organizer, it only makes sense that someone wants to document the experience in documentary form.
Ron Howard and Brian Grazer are doing just that, making a movie out of Jay-Z's Philadelphia music festival, according to the New York Post. Grazer has announced that he and Steve Stoute are producing the film with Jay-Z, with Howard directing.
"It is going to be born through Jay-Z’s perspective . . . how he puts the event together," said Glazer. "Jay stayed the king for a very long time . . . I can't even begin to explain how he is capable of remaining relevant. He is a phenom, like a musical Michael Jordan."
The Made In America festival is set to feature a unique mix of Pearl Jam, Drake, Odd Future, D'Angelo, Skrillex, Rick Ross and more. Yes, that's one hell of a strange lineup, but it's sure to be one hell of a show. See you there!
