Hulu is giving the 1974 blaxploitation film ‘Foxy Brown‘ a reboot and Meagan Good is tapped to play Foxy Brown.
The original film was written and directed by Jack Hill and starred Pam Grier as the toplining actress. The film followed Brown, the strong, sexy, ass-kicking protaganist as she sought revenge for the murder of her boyfriend by a drug syndicate.
The film was not only a box office success but Foxy Brown had a lasting legacy that transcended through generations and inspired many characters such as Beyoncé’s role as Foxxy Cleopatra in ‘Austin Power Goldmember.’
The reimagined TV series will be penned by Malcolm Spellman and Ben Watkins. Meagan Good is tapped to play Foxy Brown and will serve as a producer on the series alongside her husband DeVon Franklin who will serve as executive producer.
