Several of the key behind-the-scenes team on the Oscar-nominated “Judas and the Black Messiah” are getting back together for a new and currently untitled feature said to center on an “American political insurrection”.
Specifics of the plot are under wraps, but unlike ‘Judas’ this will be set in modern times and will span several genres.
The three-word description immediately conjures images of the Washington D.C. riot in January, but there’s no indication or confirmation that is involved.
Shaka King will direct and co-write the script, while Ryan Coogler, Charles D. King and Lil Rel Howery will produce. The project is also on the lookout to build out its writing team.
