The production is set to begin on June 12, reported Deadline.
The film centers on the life of Moore, who recorded the 'Dolemite' comedy albums in the early 1970s and used the proceeds to finance the 1975 film "Dolemite," in which he starred as a pimp and ghetto hero. Moore also starred as Dolemite in "The Human Tornado," "The Monkey Hustle," and "Petey Wheatstraw: The Devil's Son-in-Law." He died in 2008.
