In a new trailer for Dolemite Is My Name, Eddie Murphy plays real-life Rudy Ray Moore, creator of the 1975 film Dolemite — a classic '70s blaxploitation film about an obscene pimp who has a run-in with the law.

The film has a massively star-studded cast, including appearances from Wesley Snipes, Keegan-Michael Key, Chris Rock, Craig Robinson, Snoop Dogg, Mike Epps, Da'Vine Joy Randolph, T.I. and more.

Dolemite Is My Name is slated to make its way to Netflix this fall. For now, watch the trailer down below.

This isn't the comedian's only Netflix deal on the table. Murphy has also reportedly been in talks with the streaming service about reviving his standup career for an undisclosed number of comedy specials.
