Jay-Z and Kanye West Are Producing a Chris Rock Film Co-Starring Adam Sandler
The Roots' Questlove serves as executive music producer for 'Top Five'
Sure we like Jay Z, and we like Kanye West, but we like them together most of all. And not just in a Watch the Throne kind of way, but also with regard to their balling so hard as a best buddies and, yes, as two of the rap world’s most diversified entrepreneurs too.
Turns out their newest collaboration is a film written by, directed by, and starring Chris Rock called Top Five. Hov and Yeezy are on board as co-producers for the feature, reports Pitchfork, in which Rock plays Andre Allen, a film star re-examining his previous career as a comedian. Roots drummer and Tonight Show band leader Questlove serves as executive music producer. And according to IMDB, Adam Sandler co-stars as … Adam Sandler.
Other familiar names include Rosario Dawson, Kevin Hart, Gabrielle Union, Tracy Morgan, Cedric the Entertainer, J.B. Smoove, Anders Holm, and 2014 VMAs host/non-host Jay Pharoah.
