Harlem Couturier Dapper Dan Is Getting His Own Biopic
NEW YORK, UNITED STATES — Harlem couturier, designer and tailor Daniel Day also known as Dapper Dan is getting his own biopic via Sony.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, “The life of Dapper Dan — the godfather of hip-hop fashion, who dressed everyone from LL Cool J to Jay-Z — is coming to the big screen. Sony is developing a biopic based on Dapper Dan‘s upcoming memoir (out in 2019 via Random House), which will be adapted by Jerrod Carmichael. Set in Harlem, the feature is described as a ‘high-stakes coming-of-age story.'”
Carmichael will also produce alongside Josh Bratman of Immersive Pictures. Dapper Dan and Jelani Day, his son and brand manager, are set to executive produce.
Ange Giannetti and Maia Eyre are overseeing the project for the studio.
