In December of 2017, Matt Barnes took to Instagram to announce his retirement from the NBA after a successful fifteen year stint. As apart of his announcement he made it very clear that his new goals involve becoming a billionaire by the age of 50 in correlation with business meetings that allow for him to dress casually and result in him making more money off the court than he did on the court.
Two months into 2018 and Barnes’ plans are fast in motion. Today [February 11th], Barnes took to Instagram to announce the green light he received on producing a Huey Newton biopic film in which will be titled Power to the People. Barnes even went as far as to reference Keith Powers, best known from The New Edition Story and Straight Outta Compton, to play the leading role as Huey Newton.
The life after professional basketball is looking up for Matt Barnes and we’re excited for more news on the Huey Newton biopic to soon be released.
