Why Jon Watts denied ironic Shaka King for enormity Esposito!

Hollywood loves the biopic genre, tackling everyone from former presidents like Abraham Lincoln to movie legends like Judy Garland. The entertainment industry hasn’t shown the same eagerness to tell stories about the Black community, despite an abundance of heroes and historical figures. Hollywood also tends to embrace pat stories of triumph over adversity, preferably making movies that end on an optimistic note. That’s not “Judas and the Black Messiah.” Shaka King’s film is more similar to Andrew Dominik’s “The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford,” which used the outlaw’s killer as a way of looking at James’ life and times. “Judas and the Black Messiah” is as interested in O’Neal’s treachery and feelings of guilt as it is in documenting Hampton’s position in the Civil Rights movement.

Actor Jermaine Fowler called King to tell him that his friend Berson had a Hampton movie that he was trying to get made. In August 2017, Berson’s script version, now titled “To Fred Hampton,” was getting some heat, with. F. Gary Gray (“Straight Outta Compton”) in talks to direct and Casey Affleck and John Powers Middleton in negotiations to produce. Names like Jaden Smith and O’Shea Jackson Jr. were being floated to portray the chairman. Berson and Shaka King opted to join forces, and

During the Marvel Studios portion of Disney’s Investor Day, Kevin Feige not only announced Fantastic Four, but also shared that Spider-Man director Jon Watts will be the one to helm the reboot. With Marvel Studios now exploring Marvel’s first family, this also means Doctor Doom probably isn’t far behind and many have already been fan-casting The Mandalorian star Giancarlo Esposito in the role.
