Jay-Z signs film and TV production deal with The Weinstein Company

Jay-Z has signed himself a film and TV deal with The Weinstein Company, which is pretty fancy. The deal will give TWC first dibs of any film or TV projects the rapper comes up with in the next two years, according to The Hollywood Reporter. I’m particularly looking forward to ‘The Tragic Tale Of A Tidal Takeover’. Which I’m sure is in development.

“I’m excited to tell stories from real life prophets who, through their struggles, have changed the world for the better and others whose stories are filled with fantasy and delight”, says Jay-Z. Hmm, no tragedy then. “Harvey and David [Weinstein] are visionaries, both of whom have done this time and time again. I’m already passionate about what we currently have in the pipeline, and I’m looking forward to discovering others”.

Projects like this aren’t something the Roc Nation chief is new to either. Jay-Z’s name appears on various projects as a producer already, including the remakes of ‘Annie’ and ‘The Great Gatsby’. And of course, we all await with some anticipation ‘The Tragic Tale Of A Tidal Takeover’.
