Watch The Official Trailer For Superfly
The man behind some of your favorite rap videos Director X is remaking the classic 1972 film Super Fly.

The film also stars Jason Mitchell, Michael Kenneth Williams, Jennifer Morrison, Big Boi, Rick Ross and more.
Watch the trailer below.
Director X explains to EW:
“Atlanta today is kind of what Harlem was back then in the ’70s. The music of the city is the music of the world. The culture of the city is the culture of the world. Trends that happen in Atlanta reverberate around the planet. So when we were looking for a place to set this movie again, Atlanta made a lot of sense. I mean, there’s a Whole Foods on 125th St. [in Harlem]. It’s just not the same. Times have changed. We’ve had to move with the times.
Superfly opens in theaters on June 15th, 2018.
