Metro Boomin Releases 'Heroes & Villains' Short Film Starring Morgan Freeman, LaKeith Stanfield, Young Thug & Gunna

Metro Boomin releases the Heroes & Villains short film starring Morgan Freeman, LaKeith Stanfield, Young Thug, and Gunna. The movie precedes the release of his eagerly awaited Heroes & Villains, his second studio album, coming Friday, Dec. 2.

The Gibson Hazard-created film is a continuation of Boomin’s cinematic partnership with Morgan Freeman as well as his musical story, which is depicted in each of his album installations. Since Metro has a strong affinity for movies, he wanted the movie to give his audience a cinematic listening experience as opposed to having them listen to an album song by song. Since he was in his teens, Hazard has been at the vanguard of cinematography, producing films for celebrities like The Weeknd, Billie Eilish, Future, and Lil Uzi Vert.

The album Heroes & Villains, the follow-up to Metro’s Not All Heroes Wear Capes from 2018, is in honor of the producer’s late mother Leslie Wayne. In this short film, actor LaKeith Stanfield plays the “New Villain in Town,” who is initially seen dashing out of a station in a fire engine with flamethrowers on top. Metro, the main character in the movie, chooses to step in. The famous Morgan Freeman narrates Metro, which depicts the hero dashing in to save the city to the accompaniment of songs from his new album Heroes & Villains.

Freeway Rick Ross Wants Donald Glover To Play Him In Upcoming Biopic

freeway ricky ross

In a recent interview with VladTV, former drug kingpin Freeway Rick Ross and director Mike Ho shared some insight into Ross’s upcoming biopic. Ross shared that he has been working on his documentary for 35 years and has been looking for the right director to handle his story with care, unlike the show Snowfall, which is loosely based on his story.

“It be hard for me to sit there and watch sometimes,” Ross said. “It’s so much bullshit. This is really history that they’re fucking with. Because people know that it’s some real in that show. This is really our history. This would be like taking slavery and playing with slavery; that’s how delicate the story really is. And for somebody to take it and butcher it up and do what John Singleton did; or allowed them to do. I don’t care who did it.”

Director Mike Ho seemed eager to be working wit h Ross on bringing his story to the big screen. He too wants to handle Ross’s story with care and give audiences the “raw” and “uncut” story of Ross’s life.

“And one of the first things that I said when I sat down with him was like, if we’re gonna tell your story, we gotta be unsafe,” Ho said. Because I feel like when everyone approaches something with him, even the shows that he’s not happy with, all the stuff you hear about Freeway, it’s always a safe version of him. We’ve never seen the raw and uncut true story of what Ross is saying.”

When asked if there is a certain actor they are eying for the starring role, both men agreed that Donald Glover would be the best person for the job, even saying that he might make a good co-director as well.

“I’m always down to collaborate,” Ho said. “As a director, every actor is a director to me in the sense of understanding a scene and getting things done. But I think he would be brilliant for it. He was the first name that kind of came up over dinner. And he’s just a genius at what he does.”

Tyler Perry Defends Madea Character: ‘I Love the Movies That I’ve Done’

Over the years, Spike Lee has been critical of Tyler Perry’s film and television work, specifically his Madea character.

While sitting with Chris Wallace, Perry is asked about Lee’s 2009 comments stating that the Madea character is “coonery buffoonery.”

“There’s a certain part of our society, especially Black people in the in the culture that, they look down on certain things within the culture,” Perry said. “For me, I love the movies that I’ve done because they are the people that I grew up with that I represent and they, like, my mother would take me in the projects with her on the weekends, she played cards with these women.

“So when someone says, you’re harkening back to a point in our life that we don’t want to talk about or we don’t want the world to see, you’re dismissing the stories of millions and millions of Black people, and that’s why I think it’s been so successful because it resonates with a lot of us who know these women.”

For film fans who wish to see a different style of Tyler Perry’s work. His new film, A Jazzman’s Blues, is now available on Netflix.

Speaking with PEOPLE, Perry reveals it’s the first screenplay he ever penned.

“I wrote it in 1995. It was the first screenplay I ever wrote,” Perry said. “The two characters are just trying to find their own way in the world. Initially, I wanted to play the lead role of Bayou, but that was 1995 — I aged out.”

He added, “I was in Atlanta struggling to make it. I was hungry, sleeping on my cousin’s couch, eventually getting put out and being homeless. I was trying to get my first play off the ground, and this screenplay just poured out of me. I held onto it for all of these years.”

unnamed 42

The film’s synopsis reads:

A sweeping tale of forbidden love, A JAZZMAN’S BLUES unspools forty years of secrets and lies soundtracked by juke joint blues in the deep South. Written, directed and produced by Academy Award honoree Tyler Perry, the film stars Joshua Boone and Solea Pfeiffer as star-crossed lovers Bayou and Leanne alongside an ensemble cast that includes Amirah Vann, Austin Scott, Milauna Jemai Jackson, Brent Antonello, Brad Benedict, Kario Marcel, Lana Young and Ryan Eggold. The film features an original song performed by Ruth B., songs arranged and produced by multi-Grammy winner & two-time Academy Award nominee Terence Blanchard, music by Aaron Zigman and choreography by Debbie Allen.

A trailer has not yet bee released.
