Dolemite Is My Name!
- The scoop: Not only does Eddie Murphy star in Netflix's upcoming comedy, but he'll be joined by Wesley Snipes, Tituss Burgess, Keegan-Michael Key, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Craig Robinson, T.I., and more in bringing the true story to life. The film follows struggling comedian Rudy Ray Moore (Murphy) as he decides to create an outrageous onstage alter ego — Dolemite — to put an end to his long string of failures in show business (singing, stand-up comedy, etc.). The creation of the obscene pimp character eventually leads him to cross paths with pretentious and skeptical director D'Urville Martin (Snipes), who agrees to helm his movie.
- Release date: Fall TBD
