T.I.‘s impressive music resume speaks for itself. After decades of classic music work, the Atlanta rapper has been venturing more and more in the film side and has been vocal in his activist work. With this, Deadline reports that T.I. will be starring in Flint, a movie focused on the ongoing water crisis in Flint, Michigan.
The film will be both written and directed by Malcolm M. Mays, who has previously worked in films such as Southpaw and Life of a King. The movie is reportedly centered around “a spiritually reformed ex-convict who finds himself embroiled in a murder mystery, set upon by his ex-lover and a young mentee that unravels the very fabric of the water crisis afflicting the community he grew up in.” Considering the film will touch on the water crisis, it’ll be a must-watch for anyone interested in learning more about the issue.
Will Smith will reportedly produce the film and Tip’s Grand Hustle Films will also play a role in production. It’s also noted that John Singleton played an important role in bringing the film to life, but nothing’s been disclosed regarding his contributions. There’s no release date for the movie as of now, but it should be a great watch.
