April 27, 2015 | D&LAfter the success of his latest track ‘Glory’ with John Legend, Common already has his sights set on not one, but two upcoming movies!
Not a stranger to the film world, as he has starred in many previous productions including Brown Sugar, American Gangster and Selma, it is believed that the Oscar winner (for Best Original Song) will be featuring in films Suicide Squad & Being Charlie, for his upcoming projects.
David Ayer’s Suicide Squad will also feature incredible actors such as Will Smith, Viola Davis, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje and Jared Leto.
The story follows a group of super villains who are forced to go on a covert mission for a government agency and it’s all in exchange for their reduced sentences.
The next movie – Being Charlie – focuses on an 18-year-old who breaks out of rehab and later on in life meets a young woman who seems just as troubled as himself. The drama follows the pair throughout their journey, but details haven’t yet been released on Common’s character.
These days many musicians are bridging the gap between their first love – music – and other projects they wish to persue, whether it be acting, designing a fashion range or becoming humanitarians and spokespeople for a worldwide foundation. There are no limits to what we can do once you put your mind to it after all!
