Sammy Davis Jr Biopic in the Works

Entertainment Studios, Inc. has picked up the life rights of Sammy Davis, Jr, with the company planning to bring his story alive on the big screen and on Broadway. Entertainment Studios is working with Sammy Davis, Jr’s daughter, Tracey Davis, on the projects.

Sammy would have turned 86 on December 8, 2011.

Says Tracey: “On his deathbed, one of the last things my father told me as he put my face in his hands was: ‘Tracy, tell my story. Warts and all.’ Byron Allen, who knew and worked with my father, is the perfect producer to help my family and I achieve my father’s dying wish.”

“Sammy Davis, Jr. was a phenomenal entertainer, icon, and American treasure whose inspirational story has to be told,” stated Byron Allen, Founder, Chairman and CEO of Entertainment Studios. “We are excited to bring his life story to both the stage and the big screen.”
