Jaime Foxx to play Martin Luther King Jr.
According to sources Dreamworks with the long-planned biopic of civil rights activist Martin Luther King Jr, and aiming to attach actor Jamie Foxx and director Oliver Stone to the project.
Steven Spielberg, Suzanne de Passe, Madison Jones and Sam Nappi are producing. Members of King’s family are involved as executive producers.
Neither Stone nor Foxx have offers at this stage, but meetings have taken place. The two are keen on doing it, but reservations abound.
Stone is one of Hollywood’s most polarizing figures, who loves stirring up the sand not just by being outspoken on issues, but also by tackling political or social material using a strong point of view.
Gumbumpers, do you think Jamie will be a good pick?
