Jackson says:

“We just partnered with Bernie Mac’s estate to cover Bernie Mac’s story,” Jackson said.

He added that the new deal, which he was “very excited about,” still has the ink drying on the contract as it had just happened that day.

John Legend had no idea about the project. He says:

“Look at you breaking news over here.”

The biopic will be a scripted feature-length movie about Mac’s life and career. As of right now, there are no additional details about the movie.

Who do you think should star as Bernie Mac?
