In his highly-anticipated follow-up to the four-time Academy Award® nominated blockbuster The Help, Tate Taylor returns to direct the incredible James Brown biopic, Get On Up. Produced by Academy Award® winner Brian Grazer (A Beautiful Mind, 8 Mile) alongside Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger (Shine A Light), Get On Up is based on the incredible life story of the Godfather of Soul, taking audiences on a journey from his impoverished childhood to his evolution into one of the most influential figures of the 20th century.
When James Brown is given a chance in prison to demonstrate his musical prowess he makes an unlikely friend that will eventually help him get out of jail and into a career in music. With burning creativity and nothing to lose, Brown quickly becomes a superstar known for pushing the boundaries both musically and professionally in the face of racism and conservative thinking.
