Music video director Director X is behind the remake of the 1972 blaxploitation classic.
Future has released Auto-tuned soul(ish?) track ‘No Shame’ featuring PARTYNEXTDOOR. It comes from the soundtrack for an upcoming remake of Super Fly*, a 1970s blaxploitation film about a drug dealer who’s ready to get out of the game but finds himself in a difficult situation with corrupt cops.
The new Superfly costars black-ish’s Trevor Jackson, as well as Jason Mitchell who played Eazy-E in Straight Outta Compton and also featured in last year’s Oscar-nominated Mudbound. The film is directed by Director X, known for music videos by Drake, Iggy Azalea, Kendrick Lamar and Rihanna, and will come out later this year.
Watch the teaser for the remake and the trailer for the original below.
*Yes, one is called Superfly and the other is called Super Fly.
