SHAQ TO TEST ACTING ABILITY AS RAPPIN' GENIE IN "KAZAAM"
Published May 15, 1995
Shaquille O'Neal has signed on to star in "Kazaam," a feature film to be directed by Paul Michael Glaser, according to this morning's VARIETY. The film by Interscope Communications will be shooting in July, after the NBA season. O'Neal will play a "rapping, tough-talking genie who has an Odd-Couple-like relationship with a 12-year old boy." This is the first picture in a two-movie deal for O'Neal, who is scheduled to begin production of "Shaq Fu" next summer (John Brodie, DAILY VARIETY, 5/15 issue).
