Lee Directs Jackson & Mac’s Soul

Dimension Films has set Malcolm Lee to direct the road trip comedy “Soul Men” reports Variety.

Samuel L. Jackson and Bernie Mac will play bickering backup soul singers who haven’t spoken in 20 years but reluctantly travel cross country together for a tribute concert to honor their famous former band leader.

Jackson and Mac will do their own musical and dancing performances for the film, which will begin production on January 21st. Robert Ramsey and Matthew Stone (“Intolerable Cruelty,” “Life”) penned the script.
