His empire includes a wide range of ventures such as a record label, restaurants and now, he has partnered with another power-player, Will Smith, to break into the movie industry.
Smith, along with his wife Jada-Pinkett Smith, runs Overbooked Productions. And from now on, Jay-Z will join the couple to develop and produce movies together. They are already working on the remake of the movie Annie, which will star Will and his daughter Willow.
Jay-Z has recently opened up about this new venture: “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.”
It looks like this might work for them, don’t you think?
