Oscar winning music maestro A.R. Rahman will be part of the forthcoming Hollywood film Son of a Preacher Man, based on the life and times of Grammy winning singer-lyricist-producer P.J. Morton.
To be shot in Atlanta and New Orleans in USA and London in United Kingdom, Son of a Preacher Man is directed by Michael Akwesi Djaba and will be released in 2010. Rahman and P.J. Morton collaborated on the ‘Sajna’ song in recent Hollywood comedy Couples Retreat.
Besides Rahman, American Gospel musician Kirk Franklin (Norbit), Grammy nominated American Idol Winner Ruben Studdard (Life on a Stick) and producer Warryn Campbell (Stomp the Yard) will also have roles in this film.
