Music mogul Jay Z is dipping his toes into the Hollywood scene. Young Hov has officially partnered up with The Weinstein Co. for an exclusive two-year deal.
According to reports, Mr. Carter and the respected company will work together on potential film and TV opportunities.
The pact is a two-year overall deal in which TWC will have first-look options with Shawn “Jay Z” Carter to produce television and film projects, both scripted and unscripted. Projects under this deal are already in development and will be announced in the coming weeks. The rapper turned mogul’s past film credits include producing Will Gluck’s Annie remake, co-producing Chris Rock’s Top Five and executive-producing Baz Luhrmann’s The Great Gatsby.

Jay has already confirmed the headline-generating deal and revealed what fans can expect from the partnership.
“I’m excited to tell stories from real-life prophets who, through their struggles, have changed the world for the better and others whose stories are filled with fantasy and delight,” said Jay Z in a statement. “Harvey and David are visionaries, both of whom have done this time and time again. I’m already passionate about what we currently have in the pipeline, and I’m looking forward to discovering others.” (The Hollywood Reporter)
Earlier this week, Jay caught social media’s attention after rubbing elbows with Atlanta rap veteran Gucci Mane.
Last week, Jay hooked up with his R&B wife Beyoncé to watch a Dallas Cowboys game at AT&T Stadium in Texas.
