Dr. Yanna Brown Also Likes Chris Brown For The PartA James Brown biopic isn't new, in fact, it's quite old. Way back in 2006, Paramount and Imagine Entertainment brought on Spike Lee to direct the film that he would also rewrite, adding another pen to a draft that had already been through a number of hands including Steve Baigelman ("Feeling Minnesota") who got it rolling and Jezz and John Henry Butterworth ("Fair Game") who did the most "recent" draft. Word on the project has pretty much been quiet since but it appears that movement is still happening sort of.
