Four Sammy Davis Jr. Movies Are On The Way
One biopic is being brought to the big screen by his widow Altovise Davis and is based on his 1965 memoirs "Yes, I Can." A rival biopic has also finally been given the go ahead, following negotiations with the Davis estate, and is based on his second set of memoirs, 1989's "Why Me?" That film is being produced by Chicago filmmakers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron.
Elsewhere, according to The New York Times, a feature documentary is being made based on "Yes, I Can," while music promo director Earle Sebastian is teaming up with rapper Damon Dash to shoot "Sammy and Kim," about Davis's controversial inter-racial relationship with Novak.
