Let Me Tell Ya 'Bout The Birds, The Bees, And The Sam Cooke Biopic
Cooke, the hugely influential soul singer who was tragically murdered in 1964, wrote and recorded the hits "You Send Me," "Twistin' The Night Away," "Only Sixteen," and "A Change Is Gonna Come," which became a sort of definitive anthem for the civil rights movement.
ABKCO, the company that owns Cooke's publishing rights, will produce and self finance the film. No director has been secured yet, so if your reel includes recreated footage of soul legends belting out impassioned hits, you might want to get that to ABKCO, stat. (Hollywood Reporter)
