Cool J to play Edison?

12.03.2003

Yes that's right. LL Cool J will star as Thomas Edison in a "hip-hop re-telling" of inventor Thomas Edison in Spike Lee's DA WIZARD OF MENLO PARK. Biz Markie has signed on to play President Hoover and Grandmaster Flash will star as Henry Ford.

Yes, I'm just kidding.

LL Cool J will star in a film titled EDISON but it unfortunately won't have anything to do with Thomas Edison and won't co-star Biz Markie or Grandmaster Flash. It instead will co-star Morgan Freeman and Kevin Spacey (boooooring) and will follow a young journalist who uncovers a gang of corrupt cops. He enlists the aid of a "burnt-out" reporter (Freeman) and the investigator for the District Attorney to help him get to the bottom of the scandal. EDISON will be the second film for Cool J under the James Todd Smith moniker - his actual birth name. Sadly LL Cool J has gone by the wayside. Filming on EDISON is expected to begin this February in Vancouver. David Burke ("Law and Order: Special Victims Unit") will make his feature-length directorial debut from his own script. When asked to comment, Biz Markie said cryptically, "I asked her her name, she said blah-blah-blah, she had 9/10 pants and a very big bra." Interesting...
