Jeffrey Wright is getting Muddy.

ComingSoon reports that Wright has signed on to play blues giant Muddy Waters in Cadillac Man, a Sony/BMG-backed film about the classic Chess Records label. Wright will star opposite Matt Dillon, who is set to play the label’s co-founder, Leonard Chess. From the article:

The period piece follows the rise and fall of Chess Records, which also launched the careers of Etta James and Chuck Berry. Chess, who was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1987, scoured the South, checking out the various blues scenes and selling records from the back of his Cadillac.

Darnell Martin will write and direct. The report doesn’t mention a target release for Cadillac Man, but says filming is scheduled to start in January.
