T.I. In Talks To Join Eddie Murphy In Dolemite Biopic

T.I. is in talks to star in movie about legendary actor Rudy Ray Moore.

(AllHipHop News) Rapper T.I. is in talks to join Eddie Murphy in the Rudy Ray Moore biopic, "Dolemite Is My Name!"

Murphy will star as Moore in director Craig Brewer's film, which also features Wesley Snipes, Mike Epps, Craig Robinson, and Tituss Burgess.

Moore, who died in 2008, is considered by many to be the Godfather of Rap thanks to his penchant for including raunchy, sexually explicit rhymes in his comedy act.

He self-funded the original 1975 "Dolemite" movie, which became a hit blaxploitation film, centered upon a pimp with a harem of kung fu-fighting prostitutes.

T.I. is in negotiations to play a movie producer.
