Jim Jones has partnered with CMG Entertainment in a multi-million dollar deal to create, produce and distribute Vampire Life: The Movie in addition to an accompanying movie soundtrack. The rapper will play the leading role in the film, which is set to be a full-length action feature and be released in December of this year. The movie will go into production immediately and will be shot in Miami, New York, Boston and Baltimore in mid-September. The soundtrack, to be released at the same time as the film, will be executive produced by Jim Jones and CMG Entertainment CEO Cisco Rosado.
"We are very excited to partner with Jim Jones and be part of the Vampire Life movement," said Rosado. "Any time you have the opportunity to partner with an established artist and businessman of Jim's caliber, you are bound to have a successful project and we look forward in growing the partnership."
Earlier this year, Jones was feuding with fellow Harlem rapper Azealia Banks about the definition of the word "vamp." After a heated exchange on Twitter, Banks dropped a diss track aimed at Jones called "Succubi," bringing his artistry into question. While it's likely that Banks won't receive an invitation to star in the Dipset member's new film, she'll have the opportunity to see how Jim's vamp life differs from hers.
