Soulja Boy Talks "Juice" Remake and Announces Waka Flocka's Role

Rapper reveals details about his upcoming film debut.

Published April 28, 2011

Like it or not, Soulja Boy is going hard with Juice. Though some have criticized his decision to go full-speed ahead with the remake of the 1992 classic film, the ATL rapper has been heavily promoting his acting debut. Now, in a recent interview with rap-up.com, SB revealed that the movie will also star fellow ATL-based rapper Waka Flocka Flame.

"Waka Flocka’s gonna be in the movie. It’s gonna be crazy. He called, he reached out," Soulja Boy said. "I just felt like if I was gonna put anybody in the movie, it should make sense and be somebody that I really got a relationship with in the rap game, for real." Waka Flocka will play a member of Soulja Boy's crew.

 

Other details about the film have started to surface online as well. In an interview with xxlmag.com, SB said the movie will show a softer side to his character Bishop, with a few variations on the original script. But despite his admiration of the film, SB admits that he hasn't yet had a chance to listen to the film's beloved soundtrack.

 

The movie is currently shooting in Atlanta, and according to Soulja Boy, he's only got about three more shoots to go. A date for the film's release has not yet been determined.
