A film about the life of James Brown, produced by Mick Jagger and directed by ‘The Help’ director Tate Taylor, now has a star to play the iconic singer. Chadwick Boseman, who has mostly worked on TV, but has more recently moved into film, will take on the role, reports The Wrap.

The film has actually been in production for several years, with various actors and directors lined up to work on it. However, it now seems that a team is set and filming will begin next year. For an idea of whether or not Boseman will be any good or not, he has another biopic, this seeing him play baseball star Jackie Robinson, out in the UK on 13 Sep.
