Chess, who was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1987, scoured the South, checking out the various blues scenes and selling records from the back of his Cadillac.
The script for the movie has been penned by Darnell Martin, who is also helming the project.
The pic is being produced by Sony/BMG’s Sofia Sondervan and Andrew Lack, reports the Hollywood Reporter.
The period piece follows the rise and fall of Chess Records, which launched the careers of such R and B greats as Muddy Waters, Etta James and Chuck Berry.
Filming is set to begin in January in New Jersey and Chicago. (ANI)
