Abel Ferrara, and independent director known for the movies “King of New York” and “Funereal”, will be directing a re-imagining of Robert Louis Stevenson’s “The Strange case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde”.
Set to star as the lead Dr. Jekyll is Academy Award winning actor Forest Whittaker who recently took the gold home for how role in “The Last King of Scotland”. Set to play his devious and disturbed alter ego Mr. Hyde is the rapper who is as famous for his lyrics as he is for his “beefs” with other male rappers Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson III
