Back in December Sony Pictures announced they were remaking the blaxploitation cult classic Superfly [click here if you missed that].

Rapper Future joins the production team...

Superfly's director, Director X, broke the news on Instagram last night.

First of all STOP letting YT use the term blaxploitation in referring to these movies. More blacks were employed in those movies and times than there are now.

Hollywood was fuckin going broke.These movies saved it. The deal was they would do more movies with black ppl. Once they recovered of course they didn't keep their word. Most of the first ones were about kicking the dope man out of the neighborhood. Very positive messages.

When my son graduated high school. I rented every one of those black movies in Blockbusters at the time.

He saw what I had been telling him about the game YT played . Anything good about us they always put a negative connotation on it. We help by continuing not to know history of recent accomplishments,in this case. And also mimicking their fuckery.

The soundtrack by THE GREAT CURTIS MAYFIELD alone was worth the cost of the Superfly movie. Superfly itself is about a dope dealer trying to get out of the drug game.

Sometimes I like to be petty because it relaxes me. So fuck FRUTURE. That's how I spell it. Ahhhaaa. Wake up!

This is just weird to have a "rapper" produce music for the score....when all of these Hot producers out there...oh well, good luck with that

Some remakes can be cool but a movie like "Supafly"? Please leave certain classic films alone. On top of that don't disrespect a film by adding someone in it who has no interest or experience in Theatre arts. The movie industry seems to be on a decline. I miss movies like "Brown Sugar with Taye Diggs." it seems like there are not enough GOOD black writers and directors in Hollywood.

Why is Future even a thing? He is trash. I bet his booty hole is gaping from bending over for execs!

Some movies need to just be left alone...Supafly, the Mack, Friday Foster, Sheba Baby, the Godfather..hell I was mad lifetime remade Steel Magnolias and Beaches. They're going to mess up the whole soundtrack by Curtis Mayfield. I will not be spending money or time watching that crap. Trevor Jackson playing Priest??? Hell naw.
