Jamie Foxx is teaming up with TV director Nelson George to develop a film about profanity titled "MF: The History of a Nasty Word."
Picking up a different take on filmmaking, Jamie Foxx is gearing up to make a really unusual film feature: a flick about the ultimate mother----ing curse word, MTV has learned.
Titled "MF: The History of a Nasty Word", the big screen work will be directed by "CB4" scribe Nelson George who described the picture to present "a top 10 of the greatest MF-sayers of all time" with Samuel L. Jackson and Richard Pryor being tipped to take part.
Furthermore, Foxx will also be poised to make an appearance in the movie besides his duty as the film's producer, sharing "The Aristocrats"-like anecdote about his relationship with the four-syllable word.
"Jamie has an incredible story about the first time he said the word MF," so George said while revealing that he plans to shoot the movie "over the next year." "I've been researching it and how it originated from an Anglo-Saxon word from the 13th century - how it went from there to now."
