Will and Jada Pinkett Smith have signed on to produce the documentary about Jay-Z and Kanye West’s Watch The Throne tour/album. We love it when our favorite celebs unite!
Overbrook Entertainment, the production company belonging to Will and Jada Pinkett Smith, has announced plans to produce the “Watch the Throne” documentary. The film, which follows Jay-Z and Kanye West as they record the WTT album, is set to premiere in full at the Toronto Film Festival on Sunday, Sept. 9.
Jay-Z spoke about the venture saying, “The Overbrook Entertainment family and I have a unified vision. This venture into film development and production is a perfect next step with teams that are accomplished, creative and innovative.”
Jay-Z will also be working with the power couple on a remake of Annie starring Will and Jada’s daughter, Willow Smith (who is signed to Jay-Z’s label Roc Nation). Maybe Jay -Z and Beyonce’s daughter, baby Blue Ivy, will get a cameo? Not likeley…but we would love to see her! The Smiths also teamed up with the Carters to produce the succesful Broadway Musical FELA! which is currently on tour across the country.
I’m excited, how about you??
