Isaiah Washington in Lou Rawls Biopic

Isaiah Washington in Lou Rawls BiopicSubmit Comment
Pathway Entertainment has acquired the script "Through the Eyes of a Son," described as an uncensored take on the singer Lou Rawls written by his son and will develop it as a feature, with Isaiah Washington attached to play the famed crooner.

Born in Chicago in 1933, Rawls sang in a range of styles that included blues, soul, funk and R&B, selling millions of albums and earning legions of fans, as well as the accolades of Frank Sinatra. He also, according to the script, had a traumatic life, enduring a poverty-stricken childhood and, in adulthood, intense marital strife.

"We're showing the real story -- what he was doing to his wife before walking out onstage and wooing the audience with a big smile," said Pathway's Robert Egan, adding that the film will move around in time to different periods of the singer's life.

Rawls, who died in 2006, also had a side career in Hollywood, lending his voice to such cartoons as "Garfield" and "Hey Arnold!" and making appearances in movies like "Blues Brothers 2000."
