RAPPER 'LOGIC' TO CO-WRITE AND STAR IN J.J. ABRAHAMS FILM!
Logic has been tapped to star in a J.J. Abrams-produced film, Variety reports. Everything Must Go will also be cowritten by the rapper alongside Blackish writer Lisa McQuillan.
Bad Robot, the production company run by J.J. Abrams which is coming off the opening of Overlord, usually keeps most of its development under a shroud of secrecy.
But on Wednesday, the banner, which is in production on Star Wars IX, announced six big-screen projects from up-and-coming filmmakers that are in development. The projects are not yet set up at a studio.
Billed as a “Clerks for a new generation,” Everything Must Go is among several J.J. Abrams’ Bad Robot-produced films that are in the works. Among the forthcoming films are The Slate from Hell Fest writer Blair Butler, an untitled female-fronted horror allegory from The Good Place executive producer Megan Amram, who will write the script, and The Seven Sisters of Scott County directed by The Good Time Girls‘ Courtney Hoffman.
Additionally, there is a currently-untitled Ben Shifrin-penned contained time travel movie and a sci-fi romance film called Only the Lonely, which will be helmed by first-time director Stefan Grube, who served as the editor of Bad Robot film, 10 Cloverfield Lane.
Last month, Logic unveiled his fourth studio album, YSIV, which followed his chart-topping Everybody and Number Three hit single “1-800-273-8255,” named after the National Suicide Lifeline.
No details on production date just yet. All projects including 'Everything Must Go' are in early development stages. We'll be sure to keep you posted!
