Steve Stoute and directors Ron Howard and Brian Grazer discussed their vision for “Budweiser Made in America”, which is being produced and directed alongside rapper Jay-Z.
The film will be based on the “Budweiser Made in America” music festival, which will be taking place in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
Expect to see Pearl Jam, Drake, Rick Ross, Odd Future, a reunion of Run DMC and others at the festival.
“This will not be a concert film,” director Ron Howard revealed to AllHipHop.com in a statement. “It’s a reflection of the fabric of what it means to be Made in America – what the festival represents, why Jay is doing it and how he relates to each artist,” said Howard.
“The film is going to be born through Jay-Z’s perspective,” Grazer revealed. “How he puts the event together and creates this musical event that defies all genres. We will hone in on the meaning of the festival and how Jay-Z has become a voice and icon for this generation.”
“Made in America is the soundtrack to pursuing your passion, excelling at your craft, being authentic and embracing cultural diversity,” Steve Stoute told AllHipHop.com in a statement. “It’s the tapestry that ignites new ideas and brings us all closer together. That’s what we’re setting out to accomplish with this festival and film and we’re proud to have an iconic American brand like Budweiser as our partner who truly stands for what it means to be Made in America.” - Brian Grazer
The “Budweiser Made In America” film will be released in 2013.
Strongly advise you all to read this, and share it. I hope Drake reads it and pipes all the way down…
“All in all Drake, you have taken an immense L with this statement. As someone who is not a fan admittedly, I must say, you need to think before you speak.”
