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.May 17, 2017 at 3:25 pm #1202095664
Filming starts May 22!May 17, 2017 at 9:13 pm #1202095847
Sounds good! I want Taraji nominated again after she was snubbed this year. She is a great actressMay 17, 2017 at 9:15 pm #1202095849
I’m confused. Is Taraji still shooting Proud Mary?May 17, 2017 at 10:44 pm #1202095869
She was. Production wrapped either yesterday or today.May 18, 2017 at 1:08 pm #1202096468This post was found to be inappropriate by the moderators and has been removed.May 18, 2017 at 1:38 pm #1202096501This post was found to be inappropriate by the moderators and has been removed.May 19, 2017 at 12:30 pm #1202097311
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.
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).May 19, 2017 at 12:44 pm #1202097314
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.May 21, 2017 at 9:33 am #1202098489This post was found to be inappropriate by the moderators and has been removed.July 1, 2017 at 10:25 am #1202139043
Production wraps in 3 days, excited to follow news of this!
Taraji has Proud Mary (for the coin) & She’s Living My Life (for the culture) coming out next year in addition to Best Of Enemies (for the accolades) assuming it doesn’t come out this year. My bitch is out here werqing!July 1, 2017 at 6:23 pm #1202139187This post was found to be inappropriate by the moderators and has been removed.
