Big Boi will be stepping back into the acting world with a new role in the upcoming remake of the 1972 blaxploitation film Superfly.

This news comes on the heels of reports that Future will help produce the upcoming film. Along with his film producer duties, Hendrix will also help put together the soundtrack for the movie.

Director Director X recently praised Future for drawing inspiration from the original film's soundtrack. "I’m also excited to be working with Future, both on the music and as a producer of the film—the original soundtrack is legendary, and that’s an inspiration for the artists that Future is working with to bring a singular modern musical vision to the film," the director said.

Future and Joel Silver will serve as producers, while Steven R. Shore, the son of the original movie's producer, will serve as an executive producer.

This should be good.

Big Boi recently celebrated his 43rd birthday on Feb. 1. The rapper shared a video of a studio session full of friends, including Sleepy Brown, where they were apparently celebrating his born day with shots of Hennessy. "Thank you Jesus. for Another year ! I’m truly thankful ♒️ 2-1," he wrote in the caption of the Instagram video.

Just three days after his own birthday, Bi Boi also celebrated his son's 17th birthday on Feb. 3. "Happy 17th Birthday to my Baby Boy 'Cross The Boss' u are a blessing on the path to Greatness ! Luv ya Son #PattonBoys 2-3 ♒️ @crosspatton 💪🏽 #KeepGod1st," he shared in the caption of an Instagram photo of his son.
