Mos Def is Bobby Zero


Mos Def has signed on to star in and executive produce Bobby Zero. The film, from writing-directing brothers Markus and Mason Canter, is scheduled to begin production in November.

Def will play the romantic lead in the film about a down-on-his-luck social satirist who gives up his artistic aspirations to work at an advertising agency.

“Zero” will be produced by Effie Brown’s Los Angeles-based production company Duly Noted, which is also producing another Def starrer, Bury Me Standing.
