Photo Coverage: CADILLAC RECORDS Hollywood Premiere
Beyonce and co-star Adrien Brody were among those at the Los Angeles the premiere for their new film "Cadillac Records."
The film is about Leonard Chess, the legendary founder of the South Side Chicago blues label Chess Records. The period piece follows the rise and fall of Chess Records, which launched the careers of such R&B greats as Muddy Waters, Etta James and Chuck Berry. Chess, who was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1987, scoured the South, checking out the various blues scenes and selling records from the back of his Cadillac. Cedric The Entertainer will play Willie Dixon, who wrote most of the hits records and was part of the famous company. One of his most famous songs was 'Hoochie Coochie Man.'
Darnell Martin penned the script and directed. Sony/BMG's Sofia Sondervan and Andrew Lack produced.
