Nia Long, Samuel L. Jackson and Anthony Mackie have a story to tell.
The actors are to star in a movie named ‘The Banker’ which is based on the true story of two black entrepreneurs in the 1950s who hire a working class white man to pretend to be the head of their flourishing business.
Why? The limitations placed on black business owners by racist policies designed to sabotage them.
Production on the project kicked off in Atlanta earlier this year and sees George Nolfi stand as its director and Nicole Levy as its writer.
As for a due date? That’s yet to be announced.
Romulus, the company behind the movie ‘Fences’, is financing the picture.
