On Sept. 10 Willis Earl Beal will release his new album Nobody Knows, but that’s not the only project that will be featuring the talented blues/soul artist. Later this month at the Venice Film Festival Beal will make his acting debut in the upcoming motion picture Memphis. According to The Dissolve, the new Tim Sutton-direct piece sees Beal play an outsider artist “surrounded by beautiful women, legendary musicians, a stone-cold-hustler, a righteous preacher, and a wolfpack of kids.”

The upcoming movie is one of several projects to be funded by a new grant from the Venice Biennale Cinema College aimed at helping and supporting films by up-and-comers. Aside from the Chicago-based Beal, Memphis’ cast is made up entirely by non-actors found in the city. In addition to starring in the movie Beal also wrote and recorded the film’s soundtrack.
