Netflix Drops Lead Trailer for '80s Hip-Hop Biopic 'Roxanne Roxanne'
Netflix has unveiled the lead trailer for its forthcoming ’80s hip-hop biopic Roxanne Roxanne. Based on the rise of Queens rap icon Roxanne Shante, Roxanne Roxanne received some serious critical acclaim and attention at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival.
The film stars Chante Adams as Roxanne Shante, who earned a special jury prize for her standout performance. Roxanne Roxanne is written and directed by Michael Larnell and produced by Pharrell Williams, Forest Whitaker, Mimi Valdes and Nina Yang Bongiovi — it also stars Academy Award-winning Moonlight actor Mahershala Ali, Nia Long, Elvis Nolasco, Kevin Phillips, Adam Horovitz — of Beastie Boys fame — and Shenell Edmonds.
