Finally! Someone bought the rights to Outkast's movie!

Universal Pictures bought the rights to the HBO Production. The movie, formerly titled “My Life in Idlewild”, is a musical feature length film in which Andre Benjamin (Andre3000) and Antwon Patton (Big Boi) star as musicians in the 1930's (break out your seersucker suits!). The film's cast also includes Terrence Dashon Howard, Ving Rhames, Patti LaBelle, Macy Gray, Cicely Tyson, Faizon Love, and Ben Vereen. (I read somewhere that Rosario Dawson might also be a castmember) The film was directed by Bryan Barber, a longtime video director for OutKast. This will be his debut as a movie director.

The movie will also feature songs from the upcoming OutKast album as well as a soundtrack that is going to be released on LaFace/Zomba.

The film itself will be released in 2006.
