Taking Pride after 'Moan'
The Hustle & Flow duo of actor Terrence Howard and director Craig Brewer will reunite to film a biopic of Charley Pride, the first (and, some would claim, only) African-American country music superstar. It's obviously a dream project for Brewer, who spoke enthusiastically about its possibilities when I conducted a Q&A with him and producer Stephanie Allain last spring before a capacity crowd at the Nashville Film Festival. And speaking of possibilities: It's positively titillating to consider what might be waiting for us in Brewer's next film, the steamy Black Snake Moan.
