Well according to cinematical and the Jamaica Observer, Jamie Foxx says he will not be playing Bob Marley. So...I stand corrected, and my cool graphic above was officially a waste of time. So I've X-ed it out.
In my earlier post on this picture andrea commented:
"Can he do it and pull it off...yes. Should he do it..hmmm probably not.The sad thing about Jamie Foxx is that he is through the roof talented, but his choices aren't selective enough."
In 2007 he's doing a movie called The Kingdom directed by Peter Berg (Friday Night Lights). Check out the imdb.com description for the Kingdom: "A team of U.S. government agents are sent to investigate the bombing of an American facility in the Middle East. " How's that for original (Jarhead costar Chris Cooper is also in this film) Michael Mann has a writing credit for this film and is also one of the producers.Related Tags: jamie foxx, bob marley, biopic, Rachid Boucharid, Jamaica, Maimi Vice, Michael Mann, The Kingdom, Damage Control, Peter Berg, Film, Gossip, Rumors
