Oscar-Winning Director to Helm Upcoming Stax Records Film ‘Respect Yourself’


The tale of Stax Records, the trailblazing label that launched Otis Redding’s career and released hits like Eddie Floyd’s “Knock on Wood,” is eyeing the big screen and Broadway.

Evergreen Media Group, the company behind hit horror film The Conjuring, has inked a deal with author Robert Gordon to adapt his book Respect Yourself into both a film and jukebox musical.
