Jay Z And Will Smith Will Partner On A Powerful Project Together

The duo will bring Emmett Till's story to HBO.

Jay Z and Will Smith are back at it again.

In 2014, the two came together to producer the "Annie" remake, which starred Jamie Foxx and Quvenzhané Wallis and now they're aiming to tell the story of Emmett Till, a 14-year-old African American boy who's gruesome murder helped to spark the Civil Rights Movement.

According to, Hov and Smith are developing a mini-series set to air on HBO.

There aren't many details, but the story is sure to be an emotional one.

In 1955, Till was murdered after an encounter with a white woman. He was severely beaten and the teen's mother insisted on an open casket funeral so the world could see what happened to her son. Till's story became a spark for the Civil Rights Movement.
