The Godfather of Soul, James Brown’s movie is coming soon. For 17 years, various people had tried to create a movie about him but however when Tate Taylor got the scripts – he decided he gonna do it.
The movie talks about James’s life before and during his fame. It starts with James six years old than, old, abandoned by his mother and left to live with his Aunt Honey, who runs a brothel. It ends in 1993 with a comeback concert after Brown served prison time for aggravated assault and eluding the police in a wild car chase.
“There is a lot of pain in this movie, but as James says, take what’s bad and flip it on its head and make it work for you,” Taylor says. “That’s what he did, and that’s what we can all learn from complicated geniuses.”
