Jay Z will begin production of film and television projects telling the story of Trayvon Martin. Jay Z and The Weinstein Company were in heavy competition for the rights to two books Rest in Power: The Enduring Life of Trayvon Martin, and Suspicion Nation: The Inside Story of the Trayvon Martin Injustice and Why We Continue to Repeat It.
Jay Z will be taking on a role of producer for this project and is planning to make a six-part documentary style series, and has already signed a deal with the studio since last September. The Weinstein Company is also planning on releasing a film about Trayvon Martin as well.
