Chadwick Boseman will portray James Brown in an untitled biopic of the Soul singer   directed by Tate Taylor and produced by both rock legend Mick Jagger and Oscar-winner Brian Grazer.

The long-gestating project, which has been in the works since before Brown died in 2006, will chart the singer's ascent from poverty in Augusta, Ga., to his place as the Godfather of Soul, tirelessly performing such hit songs as "Papa's Got a Brand New Bag" and "I Got You (I Feel Good)."
