This film is a remake of the 1972 movie, Super Fly. The original Super Fly was about an African-American cocaine dealer who looks to quit the drug business.
Super Fly is regarded as one of the most prominent blaxploitation films of its era. A pair of sequels to the original film were made following its success. Arguably, the property is better known for its soundtrack. The album actually outgrossed the movie, which rarely happens in the industry.
Filming on the remake began in January 2018.
