The rapper has joined the couple’s production company Overbook Entertainment to develop and produce movies, reported Billboard.
The first one will be a remake of ‘Annie’, which will star Will and Jada’s 10-year-old daughter Willow.
“The Overbrook Entertainment family and I have a unified vision. We’ve already produced a Tony Award-winning play and we’re developing a true superstar in Willow. This venture into film development and production is a perfect next step with teams that are accomplished, creative, and innovative,” Jay-Z said.
The trio – who teamed up last year to bring hit musical ‘Fela!’ to the Broadway stage – will co-produce the film.
‘Whip My Hair’ singer Willow is signed to Jay-Z’s record label Roc Nation.
