Lee Daniels intends to make a household name out of the African-American martial arts viral star Super Bitch.
His first step? A feature length film.
Super Bitch rose to social media fame via comedic skits in which he, sporting pink boots, would defend himself from villains from all walks of life.
Little did he know that his talent would see him karate kick his way into Lee’s gaze and find a collaborator in the ‘Empire’ creator who has revealed that he is erecting a movie for the young man as the first phase of a plan he hopes will turn him into a Hollywood giant!

Unfortunately, the exciting news wasn’t well-received by some who fear Super may be hopping, skipping and jumping into a sea of exploitation.

I don’t know why, but Lee Daniels gives me “casting couch” vibes.
