Chris Rock ‘Hair’ doc coming to theaters

    Chris Rock is bringing his Good Hair to a theater near you.

    According to The Hollywood Reporter, Roadside Attractions and Liddell Entertainment have gotten the rights to Good Hair.

    Chris produced and co-wrote the HBO Films documentary, which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in January. Good Hair takes an in-depth look at the culture surrounding hair in the Black community.  Roadside has plans to release the film in theaters sometime this fall.

    "I’m very happy to be working with the good people at Roadside Attractions," Chris told THR. "I loved the job they did with ‘Super Size Me’ and hope we can have similar success."

    Good Hair will also look at how hair affects the lives, relationships and mentality of Black people.  Nia Long, Paul Mooney, Raven Symoné and Ice-T are just some of the celebrities that share their stories in the film.

    If you can’t manage to make it to theaters to see the documentary, it could be coming to your TV screen. HBO will keep the cable rights to Good Hair and broadcast it on their pay TV channel. Lionsgate will take care of home video and other domestic ancilliary rights.
