Imprint Entertainment has optioned the film rights to actress Pam Grier’s autobiography “Foxy, My Life in Three Acts”.
Grier was an iconic African American female sex symbol and action star in the 70’s, arguably the most recognisable name in the ‘blaxploitation’ genre. First appearing in a cameo in “Beyond the Valley of the Dolls”, the actress made numerous films in the genre including “Foxy Brown,” “Coffy” and “Women in Cages”.
She’s also been steadily employed in films and on TV over the past four decades including films and shows like “Jackie Brown,” “Jawbreaker,” “Escape from L.A.,” “The L Word,” “Ghosts of Mars,” “Smallville” and “Larry Crowne”.
The film’s story follows Grier’s life both past and present – her relationships with the likes of Richard Pryor, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, and Freddie Prinze Sr.; nights out with John Lennon, Harry Nilsson, and Peter Lawford; and her ongoing battle with cancer.
Eunetta Boone is slated to adapt the script while Michael Becker, Bennie Richburg and Alfred Sapse will produce.
