First Look At Eddie Murphy As Rudy Ray Moore In Netflix Biopic

First Look At Eddie Murphy As Rudy Ray Moore In Netflix Biopic”

The film is being directed by Hustle & Flow's Craig Brewer, who spoke about why Moore's story appealed to him. When Hollywood shuts him out, multi-talented Rudy Ray Moore strikes out on his own to make the 1975 blaxploitation film titled Dolemite.

The film, based on real-life actor and producer Rudy Ray Moore, stars Murphy as the legendary comedian/actor, who made a name for himself in the '70s by creating the character Dolemite, an eccentric pimp and hustler. Murphy's unofficial "debut" on Netflix, via Jerry Seinfeld's Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee, put Murphy back front and center, with news of upcoming comedy specials. And the ideal role for Eddie Murphy to take on these days.

As for the premise, Dolemite Is My Name follows Rudy Ray Moore's journey to becoming a comedy star, initially hoping to accomplish that by putting out a comedy record. Moore convinces a social justice-minded dramatist (Keegan-Michael Key) to write his alter ego a film, incorporating kung fu, vehicle chases, and Lady Reed (Da'Vine Joy Randolph), an ex-backup singer who becomes his unexpected comedic foil.

The film will be released in theaters during the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF). Regardless of clashing together with his pretentious director, D'Urville Martin (Wesley Snipes), and numerous manufacturing hurdles at their studio within the dilapidated Dunbar Resort, Moore's Dolemite turns into a runaway field workplace smash and a defining film of the Blaxploitation period.

Murphy is joined by Titus Burgess, Craig Robinson, Mike Epps, Da'Vine Joy Randolph, Keegan-Michael Key, Snoop Dogg and Wesley Snipes in Dolemite Is My Name, which will have a limited theatrical release and a Netflix streaming release date this fall.
