Roadside music documentary follows high school band
“Thunder Soul,” which unspooled at last year’s South by Southwest Film Fest, is skedded for a September release.
Docu follows alumni from Houston’s Kashmere High School Stage Band who return home after 35 years to play a tribute concert for former 92-year-old band lead Conrad “Prof” Johnson. Director Mark Landsman produced, along with Snoot Entertainment’s Keith Calder and Jessica Wu.
Foxx will serve a role similar as Oprah Winfrey and Tyler Perry for “Precious.”
Roadside acquired the docu in November following its screening at the Toronto Film Fest.
