Jamie Foxx to star in The Soloist
Posted 08.17.07 by reelz
Mr. Jamie Foxx (Ray, Dreamgirls) is back on the musical biopic path again with The Soloist, a drama about Nathaniel Ayers--a schizophrenic violin and cello prodigy who wound up homeless.
The script, which was written by Susannah Grant (Erin Brockovich, Catch and Release), is based on the relationship between Ayers and LA Times reporter Steve Lopez. It will be directed by Joe Wright (Pride & Prejudice, Atonement).
Remember when Jamie Foxx used to be famous for doing this?
The Soloist begins shooting in January.
