Filming is scheduled to begin July 10 on an inner-city rap movie produced by John Singleton and directed by filmmaker Craig Brewer.
"Hustle & Flow," starring Terrence Howard ("Big Momma's House"), Anthony Anderson ("Barbershop") and hip-hop artist Ludacris, will be shot over a four-week period.
Brewer has described the $2.8 million independent production as the story of a "pimp-hustler with a mid-life crisis who wants to rap."
His Memphis-based movie, "The Poor and Hungry," won the best digital feature award at the 2000 Hollywood Film Festival.
"Craig has a really unique Southern voice," Singleton said recently. "His filmic identity is linked with the city."
Singleton was nominated for a best-director Oscar for 1991's "Boyz N the Hood." His films also include "Poetic Justice" and 2000's "Shaft."
