Philly gets ready to host Jay-Z’s music megashow

It certainly wouldn’t be surprising to see people trying to catch a few free tunes from outside the perimeter. But officials stress that fence-climbers will be prosecuted.

Also, Hollywood producers Howard and Brian Grazer (“A Beautiful Mind,” “The Da Vinci Code”) have signed on to make a film about the festival. The pair’s 2007 movie “American Gangster,” about a notorious Harlem drug lord, inspired Jay-Z’s album by the same name.

“Made In America” is sponsored by Budweiser and will be held rain or shine. It benefits United Way organizations in greater Philadelphia and southern New Jersey; Lancaster, Pa., and New York City.
