Ron Howard and Brian Grazer are making a movie out of the Jay-Z-fronted Budweiser Made in America Festival, reports the New York Post. Grazer says he and Steve Stoute are producing the film with Jay-Z, with Howard directing. "It is going to be born through Jay-Z’s perspective … how he puts the event together," said Glazer. "Jay stayed the king for a very long time … I can't even begin to explain how he is capable of remaining relevant. He is a phenom, like a musical Michael Jordan."

Made In America is set for September 1st and 2nd in Philadelphia and features Pearl Jam, Drake, Odd Future, D'Angelo, Skrillex, Rick Ross and more. No release details were given for the upcoming film.
