Davis Entertainment’s urban genre label, DJ Classicz, is developing the urban horror project Shady Talez for Paramount Pictures, reports Variety.
John Davis and Dallas Jackson are producing. Chris Lighty and Mona Scott of Violator, a New York-based record label and management company, will executive produce.
The project features three stories written by Jackson and Marlon Chapman that pay hip-hop homage to classic horror films.
“We intend to marry each of the stories with a hot director from the musicvideo and/or film world along with Violator’s hip-hop talent roster,” Jackson said.
