Jay-Z, Ron Howard partner on concert film

LOS ANGELES (TheWrap.com) – Jay-Z will try to rap his way toward movie gold with an upcoming all-star concert film that will be filmed by A Beautiful Mind director Ron Howard.

With an ever-so-subtle nod to product placement, the film will be entitled Jay-Z’s Budweiser Made in America and will be produced by Howard’s Imagine Entertainment and frequent partner Brian Grazer.

The film will be shot in Philadelphia on Sept. 1 and 2 and boast a line-up that includes Pearl Jam, Run-DMC, Drake, Skrillex, Rick Ross, Miike Snow, Odd Future, and Janelle Monae.

Though past all-star music invents have produced memorable concert movies like The Last Waltz and Woodstock, Howard portrayed the project as an attempt to shine a light on the current state of American culture, not just as an opportunity to film a series of individual acts.

“This will not be a concert film; it’s a reflection of the fabric of what it means to be Made in America – what the festival represents, why Jay is doing it and how he relates to each artist,” Howard said in a statement.

Also: beer.

The film will focus on Jay-Z’s efforts to put the event together, and will interweave stories about his own rise to the top of the charts.

Steve Stoute, founder and CEO of Translation will be co-producing alongside Grazer and zradical.media. Jay-Z will take on an executive producer role in the film along with Paul Chibe, Anheuser-Busch’s U.S. marketing vice president. The film will be released next year.
