MEMPHIS to be Made into Feature Film

Filed under: Movie and Entertainment — Dr. Christopher Blackwell @ 01:48


The Broadway musical MEMPHIS is being made into a major motion picture. Alcorn Entertainment’s Mark Golden and Ally Smith will produce the film version of the Tony-Award winning Best Musical while Joe DiPietro will adapt his book into the screenplay for the film. MEMPHIS is a truly phenomenal show that follows the true story of a white radio DJ who fell in love with a Black singer in the late 1940’s while rocketing her into super stardom and making Black music and rock ‘n roll mainstream. It should translate quite well on to the silver screen. Below, take a look at the trailer for the filmed version of the stage production that was beamed live into movie theaters across the United States back in 2011. This filmed version is also available in Blu-Ray and DVD from Shout! Factory Productions.
