F Gary Gray, Craig Brewer, and Peter Berg are reportedly in talks to direct the film.
Detroit, where KNDRGRTM grew up, is a major centre in the United States for the creation and performance of music, and is the birthplace of the musical subgenres known as “The Motown Sound" and Techno.

Over the course of his recent album, KNDRGRTM gives us hazy, alternative-laced hip-hop. Throughout which, he touches on poignant topics through his lyrics, so, while he’s sonically pleasing, he’s emotionally perceptive as well.
