Pam Grier is returning to the entertainment world with her new biopic, Pam.
The movie script has been written already and will soon be shopped around. The film will surround Greir’s “bad-ass” 70s movies, sexual abuse and love affairs with Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Freddie Prinze, and Richard Pryor, who Jay Pharaoh, former SNL comedian, has already signed up to play. Grier knew as soon as she heard Pharaoh’s voice that he would be perfect for the part.
According to Deadline, Pharaoh calls the story “heartbreaking, raw, honest and beautiful, all rolled into one testimony.”
Grier has released a book giving all the details of her life, but now she wants to bring it all to the big screen. Be on the look out!
