This classic horror novel, Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, written by Robert Louis Stevenson will be revamped starring 50 Cent and Forest Whitaker. The two featured black actors will give the film a modern undertaking. Hopefully, Director Abel Ferrara will successfully bring out the Mr. Hyde in Mr. Jackson that can subsequently be felt by the younger generation.
The Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde classic illustrates the duality of human nature, the fight between good and evil which we canvass within ourselves. Dr. Jekyll (Forest Whitaker) sparingly takes a potion that allows him to unleash his inner evil alter-ego Mr. Hyde (Curtis Jackson). This potion represents freedom; the freedom and opportunity you would take to do all your evil deeds, if there was no way to be judged, ridiculed, and incarcerated by society.
Mr. Hyde is you.
