First Teaser for Director X's 'Superfly' Remake Starring Trevor Jackson
"Isn't that what the American Dream's all about?" Sony Pictures has released a teaser trailer for Superfly, a "remake" of the 1972 blaxploitation film Super Fly, about a cocaine dealer Priest who wants to score one more super deal and retire. This reimagining is from Director X, and stars Trevor Jackson (of "Grown-ish", "Burning Sands") as Youngblood Priest, this time operating in Atlanta. Not everyone may be familiar with the original, but this seems like a slick film to update for today, and the footage looks great. Superfly also stars Jason Mitchell, Michael Kenneth Williams, Lex Scott Davis, Andrea Londo, Jennifer Morrison, Rick Ross, Big Boi, and Big Bank Black. Watch the teaser below and tell us your thoughts.
