New Line Cinema has acquired The Jazz Ambassadors, a pitch for Antoine
Fuqua to direct and Morgan Freeman to star in as jazz impresario Duke

One thing I know is not true, the writer doesn't know the definition of
impresario because Duke was many things however he wasn't an impresario.
George Wein, Gene Norman, Norman Granz, they are impresarios.
