HISTORICAL! Gabby Union and Nate Parker Set to star in Nat Turner Biopic
Are you ready for this?!
Actor, Nate Parker has a new film on the rise that will surely stir up some great discussion. " The Birth of a Nation" which will serve as a biopic for revolutionary leader and slave, Nat Turner.
The current cast for the film will include How To Get Away With Murder’s Aja Naomi King, Aunjanue Ellis, Colman Domingo, Dwight Henry, Roger Guenveur Smith, Gabrielle Union and Arnie Hammer. Parker, who wrote the script for the film, will play the lead of Nat Turner and also direct the project. Filming started last September in Savannah, Georgia.
The film’s title “The Birth of a Nation,” is a response to the controversial 1915 film of the same title. What do you think?
