Jay-Z will produce the film alongside Steve Stoute.
To document his upcoming "Made in America" festival, Jay-Z has enlisted Oscar-winning duo Ron Howard and Brian Grazer to direct a film about the making of the event.
According to NY Post, Hov plans on having the pair capture artists including Rick Ross, Drake, Skrillex, Run-DMC and Pearl Jam in action during the fest, taking place on September 1st and 2nd. Steve Stoute is also set to produce the film alongside Jay.
“The festival showcases 20 pre-eminent artists that speak to the new generation. I am producing the film with Steve Stoute and Jay. Ron is directing. It is going to be born through Jay-Z’s perspective... how he puts the event together,” said Grazer. “Jay stayed the king for a very long time... I can’t even begin to explain how he is capable of remaining relevant. He is a phenom, like a musical Michael Jordan.”
