The action comedy will be produced by Smith and distributed by Universal Studios, which has just acquired the rights to reproduce it.
Westbrook Studios, a multimedia entertainment company owned by Smith and his wife Jada Pinkett Smith, is producing the feature film together with La Industria, a record label founded by Jam, according to a joint statement from the two companies.
The deal between the two production companies came after several studios submitted bids for the Westbrook Studios project. So far, details of the story are being kept under wraps.
Brooks McLaren and D.J. Cotrona are in charge of writing the script, based on their proposal to the studio.
In addition to Nicky Jam and Will Smith, Jon Mone, Miguel Melendez and Heather Washington will also produce the feature for Westbrook Studios, along with Juan Diego Medina and Lorenzo Braun for La Industria/ Three Six Zero.
In 2020, Jam and Smith previously worked together on the film "Bad Boys for Life," where the reguetonero played the role of Lorenzo "Zway-Lo" Rodriguez and Will played the lead role.
