Footage of a Watch The Throne documentary hit the Internet last week, creating a stir. The 10-minute clip finds Jay-Z and Kanye West in Sydney, Australia, putting the final touches on their collaborative album ,which was released just over a year ago. An insider source has told the New York Daily News that Will and Jada Pinkett Smith’s production company, Overbrook Entertainment, will be producing the highly-anticipated documentary. According to the source, the doc will premiere September 9th at the Toronto Film Festival.
This won’t be the first partnership between Jay-Z and the Smiths. In September of 2010, Jay-Z announced Will and Jada’s daughter, Willow, had been signed to Roc Nation. Then in January 2011,Overbrook Entertainment and Jay-Z announced they’d be teaming up for a remake of Annie, with Willow starring as the title character. And in April of this year, Viddy, an app which allows users to create short videos and share with friends, announced both Overbrook Entertainment and Roc Nation were among a group of new investors in the company.
