get out star Daniel Kaluuya, who played W'Kabi in the Marvel Studios superhero movie Black Panther, could soon play in another type of Black Panther movie for Ryan Coogler.
Kaluuya and his companion get out actor Lakeith Stanfield are in talks to play Jesus was my boyfriend, a drama that tells the true story of Fred Hampton, a revolutionary and Black Panther activist murdered in 1969. Coogler is about to produce it and you'll learn more about the new project below.
The Hollywood Reporter brings news about Jesus was my boyfriend, that Coogler produces for Warner Bros. Shaka king (High Maintenance, Peoples of the Earth, New Trade Winds) will direct and produce from a scenario that he wrote with Will Berson, who wrote credits on Scrubs and The powerful B!
Assuming the agreements are finally made, Kaluuya will play the role of Fred Hampton, an honorary student born in Illinois and active in the NAACP, negotiated a non-aggression pact between two Chicago gangs. notoriety in the Black Panther Party at both the state and national levels. Hampton was murdered by the FBI and the Chicago Police Department at the age of 21 during a raid on his apartment.
Stanfield will play William O. Neal, a car thief who was arrested and who became an FBI informant who pioneered a path to the Black Panthers, eventually becoming Hampton's bodyguard and handing over to authorities a detailed plan for the assassination of Hampton. It is said that this film "looks at Hampton's rise and death through O'Neal's perspective".
Zinzi Coogler, Kim Roth, Poppy Hanks, and Research co-writer and producer Sev Ohanian are the executive production.
Hampton was considered a charismatic type with "significant oratorical donations" and it seems that Kaluuya should be able to do justice to Hampton on the big screen. The English actor has shown a wide range of projects like skins, Sicario, Widows, and yes, Black Pantherand playing a talented speaker should not be a problem for him. (He delivered a great monologue in the heartbreaking Black mirror The episode he had played in 2011, "15 million merits".) Stanfield turned out to be an eccentric and magnetic artist in fields like Atlanta and sorry to disturb youand I'm delighted to see these two actors come together for the first time on the screen since get out in 2017.
