Jussie Smollett Owns The Rights To Alvin Ailey's Autobiography

The actor could end up with a lucrative career producing films.

(AllHipHop News) Actor Jussie Smollett's rep may be a bit tarnished as controversy swirls around allegations he faked his own hate crime.

State prosecutor Kim Foxx is under intense scrutiny for her sudden decision to drop 16 felony charges against Jussie over the infamous "attack" on January 29.

Last week, it was revealed Jussie had lost out on a big role in the Broadway revival of the play "Take Me Out," but the "Empire" actor still has options - literally.

According to the Chicago Sun-Times, Jussie owns the option rights to the authorized biography of legendary dancer, Alvin Ailey.

Jussie served as the Honorary Chair of The Ailey Spirit Gala back in 2018

According to a rep for Jussie, he's also currently in the process of developing two films.
