Memoirs of a Super Freak: According to The Hollywood Reporter, Lorenzo Di Bonaventura is in negotiations to acquire the film rights to Rick James' autobiography, "Memoirs of a Super Freak," with David Chappelle in early talks to topline the feature film adaptation of the funk rocker's memoirs for Paramount Pictures.

James, best known for his hit "Super Freak," has been working on a book for some time. In addition to his own pop and R&B hits, James wrote and produced many songs for artists such as the Temptations, Teena Marie and Eddie Murphy.
