    This film has been in the works for almost two years. It goes into production next month. Possible 2017 release? Robin Bissell (“The Hunger Games”) adapted and will direct the film.

    Civil Rights activist, Ann Atwater, faces off against the Ku Klux Klan during the 1960s in order to desegregate schools in Durham, North Carolina.

    Sounds good! I want Taraji nominated again after she was snubbed this year. She is a great actress

    I’m confused. Is Taraji still shooting Proud Mary?

    Further proof of how she is one of the hardest working actresses today. I can see her winning Best Actress because her efforts are getting lauded more and more every year.

    Hopefully this is ready for the next Oscars. Still pissed of she didn’t get nominated for Hidden Figures. I could easily see her winning for this.

    Im also predicting way early that Babou Ceesay will get nominated and maybe even win. I don’t even know who he is playing but He is such a remarkable actor. He is so talented and he is just now breaking out. He is incredible on Guerilla. If you’re not watching that amazing show, stop reading this and watch it now.

    Me too! She should’ve easily been apart of the lineup!!

    I assume the film will be ready for this year. It’s an indie film which won’t require much post production. Unless they want to wait for it to debut at Sundance or Cannes next year.

    I actually think Ceesay has the baitiest role of the cast save for Taraji. Ceesay’s character is very defiant from what I’ve read. While Atwater was a fearless, no-BS kinda woman and the only person brave enough to face Ellis (Rockwell).

    The book is great. Taraji is clearly in an Oscar-bait lane now with this and “Hidden Figures.” This is more baity than that was. It could also be Sam Rockwell’s first Oscar nomination too, which is way overdue.

    thats great because he deserves it! Anybody that sees this needs to watch Guerilla. He should be winning a fucking Oscar for that. But I really think that he is going to win easily. He’s a great actor and this seems like an easy best picture nominee. Hopefully Taraji can also win.
