In any case, it's good to see Eddie Murphy back in a comedic role that simultaneously shines a light on a 20th century entertainer some folks might not have heard of before. Dolemite is My Name is directed by American filmmaker Craig Brewer, of the films The Poor & Hungry, Hustle & Flow, Black Snake Moan, and Footloose previously. The movie was a passion project for Murphy, who recruited screenwriters Larry Karaszewski and Scott Alexander. And the flawless role for Eddie Murphy to take on these days.

Entertainment Weekly debuted the trailer for the movie, which is preparing to make its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival in September, followed by a limited theatrical release and arrival on Netflix sometime this fall.

Moore also became popular for his creation of the character Dolemite in his stand-up routines that, after five years of performing as the urban hero, he chose to bring him to the big screen with the 1975 movie of the same name.
