The ultimate "hood hero", skilled in the martial arts, and of course known for his sexual prowess, Dolemite was a pimp with a team of kung-fu-fighting prostitutes.
The film follows the story of comedian Rudy Ray Moore who eventually takes on the persona of Dolemite as he works to become a 1970s Blaxploitation film star. Moore regaled rich and ridiculously entertaining stories about life, crime, revenge, and the ladies.
Moore rode the Dolemite character he created into a successful career that spanned four decades. He then decided to make what became his breakout 1975 cult classic film Dolemite. This just looks like a seriously good time at the movies, watching another amusing movie about making movies. Undeterred by his failures, Moore has one more insane idea - and this one just might work: Dolemite.
Hustle and Circulate's Craig Brewer directs a script by Scott Alexander & Larry Karaszewski, (Large Eyes, Ed Wooden, The Folks Vs. Larry Flynt) John Davis and John Fox are producing with Murphy. Chris Rock is also due to make an appearance. "I'll put my finger in the ground and turn the whole world around", Moore says in the Dolemite trailer, as he kicks, punches, and shoots his way across Los Angeles. Nonetheless, his ambitions exceed promoting bootleg data deemed too racy for mainstream radio stations to play.
