ACTOR CHADWICK BOSEMAN TAKES ON ROLE OF THURGOOD MARSHALL IN UPCOMING MOVIE (2083 hits)



Chadwick Boseman is absolutely killing the game in Hollywood. The star of 42 and the upcoming Black Panther, he has also lined up a new film about the late Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall…and it looks good!

Having already portrayed both Jackie Robinson and James Brown, Chadwick Boseman has one other real-life subject up his sleeve. Marshall is directed by Reginald Hudlin and includes a cat of This Is Us star Sterling K. Brown, as well a Kate Hudson, James Cromwell and FOX’s Lethal Weapon star Keesha Sharp. Boseman is tasked with bringing Thurgood Marshall to life in a dramatic film surrounding one of his early court cases, as reported by Shadow and Act.

The film’s synopsis reads:

As the nation teeters on the brink of WWII, a nearly bankrupt NAACP sends Marshall to conservative Connecticut to defend a black chauffeur against his wealthy socialite employer in a s*xual assault and attempted murder trial that quickly became tabloid fodder. In need of a high-profile victory but muzzled by a segregationist court, Marshall is partnered with Samuel Friedman, a young Jewish lawyer who has never tried a case. Marshall and Friedman struggle against a hostile storm of fear and prejudice, driven to discover the truth in the sensationalized trial which helped set the groundwork for the Civil Rights Movement to come.

While discussing the upcoming film, Hudlin gushed about his anticipation for audiences to see it, stating “I can’t wait for the world to see this movie. t’s a thriller, not a biopic, about an early case of one of the greatest lawyers in American history. In a time when we need heroes who fight for justice, Marshall is an inspirational movie that brings people together.”

Marshall is scheduled to hit theaters on October 13.
