Tyrese is to portray the brilliant musician Teddy Pendegrass in a powerful biopic.
I am honored to take this journey… this is the role that I feel I was born to play. Teddy Pendergrass embraced me and before he passed put the responsibility on my shoulders to tell his story. Being here in this time and in this space and moment with Lee Daniels, Donald De Line, Little Marvin and Warner Bros is an answered prayer. Teddy, I just hope we make you, your wife and family proud… Here we go.
Tyrese will play the musician with help from Warner Bros who are working with Donald De Line, Little Marvin Lee Daniels and T to write and produce it.
A due date is yet to be set as Tyrese is hard at work on a number of other projects.
