An unauthorized biopic of activist Angela Davis is coming to the big-screen. According to Deadline reports untitled script was written by LaToya Morgan, who previously served as a staff writer on Showtime’s Shameless.
“Although the events of this film take place three decades ago, Angela Davis’s story holds a strong relevance in today’s political and social landscape, and we are excited and honored to tell it along with LaToya,” said Robbie Brenner, president of The Firm’s film division and one of the producers on the project.
This can go either really good…or just really bad. We know how Hollywood does when it comes to our stories being told, even if the person writing said story is a black woman. Please don’t let them cast Zoe Saldana in this film.
