James Brown Biopic “Get on Up” Trailer

The legend and influence of James Brown lives on in a forthcoming biopic titled Get on Up. Chadwick Boseman is set to play James Brown in the film, which is produced by Mick Jagger. The movie will span Brown’s life and follow him as he visits Vietnam, lives and tours through the civil rights movement, and spreads “the groove” and “the funk.”

The accompanying soundtrack for Get on Up is due to release July 29, and will feature live and studio tracks including “Papa’s Got a Brand New Bag, Pt. 1,” “Super Bad,” “Please Please Please,” “The Payback Pt. 1,” and the song which inspired the film’s title, “Get up (I Feel Like Being a) Sex Machine.”
