Jordan Peele has been hard at work and is ready to get back in theaters. As mentioned, Peele teamed up with filmmaker Spike Lee for the project ‘Black Klansman’, which now appears to be officially titled ‘BlacKkKlansman’. According to reports, we will all get a chance to see the film on August 10th when it arrives in theaters. For those who missed it, the movie will be based on a true story about a black police officer that goes undercover to infiltrate the Ku Klux Klan.
Focus Features announced is dating Spike Lee’s BlacKkKlansman for a theatrical release on Aug. 10. The timing of the release comes on the one-year anniversary of the Charlottesville protests which took place on Aug. 12, 2017. Focus is planning a moderate release with further expansion. BlacKkKlansman is based on Ron Stallworth’s real life as Colorado Springs’s first African-American police officer who went undercover to infiltrate the Ku Klux Klan. Unbelievably, Detective Stallworth (John David Washington) and his partner Flip Zimmerman (Adam Driver) penetrate the KKK at its highest levels to thwart its attempt to take over the city.
