Lorenzo Di Bonaventura is in negotiations to acquire the film rights to Rick James' autobiography, "Memoirs of a Super Freak," with David Chappelle in early talks to topline the feature film adaptation of the funk rocker's memoirs for Paramount Pictures. Di Bonaventura mad for 'Freak' (hollywoodreporter.com) Promote this thread!

Wonder how much influence the Rick James Episode had on this decision. And how similar the two impressions would be, though this obviously seems to be a serious project. I'm glad to see Chappelle finally "making it" after being relatively obscure for so long before his show began.
