He realized that his current gig would end up with him serving a very long prison sentence or his death at the hands of those he knows. Priest comes up with an exit strategy that involves him making the biggest deal of his life to set him up for his retirement.

The original movie did have 2 sequels, Super Fly T.N.T. (1973) and The Return of Superfly (1990). Reviews for the film and it’s portrayal of African Americans came under scrutiny. however, the original soundtrack created by Curtis Mayfield, went on the be a success.

Director X is known for helming music videos for artist such as Usher, Kanye West, Jay-Z, David Guetta, Drake, Justin Bieber, Nicki Minaj and Rihanna.
According to a Deadline post, the Hip Hop music artist Future, is on board the project and will also be serving as a producer along with with Joel Silver. The original film was produced by Sig Shore and his son, Steven R, is also on this project and is serving as an executive producer along with Matthew Hirsch, Hal Sadoff and Aaron Auch.
