Who would have thought… Showtime has decided that they’re going to partner up with Suge Knight.

This major cable network has opted to have Antoine Fuqua, known for his work in “Training Day” to direct and produce a documentary about Death Row Records co-founder. They have also decided to have Bradley J. Fischer (worked on “Black Swan’) as co-producer along with Mr.Knight to oversee the film’s soundtrack.

This film is titled “Suge Knight” which is suppose to be the first of many documentaries produced by Showtime that will take a deeper look into figures that have caused great controversy within American Culture,

Fischer states on Tuesday when the announcement was made:

“Suge Knight’s reputation and rise to power in the music business has become the stuff of legend, and he remains one of the entertainment industry’s most provocative and enduring myths. But while his name elicits an immediate and powerful reaction from people around the world, very few can legitimately claim to know the man. Antoine Fuqua and I are thrilled to be partnering with Showtime to tell this remarkable story and take audiences behind a curtain that most have been terrified to even approach.”

His moment on the big screen will touch upon how he became famous, why his empire fell and what he plans on doing in the future. The soundtrack to this film may be even more interesting as it will include original tracks from new and established artist, from his recent company Black Kapital.
