Fifty and Butler Face Off in “Den of Thieves” :Black Hollywood Wrap Up

Making the “Invisible Man” Visible to Streaming Audiences  Ralph Ellison’s 1952 novel “Invisible Man” remains a timeless work with a narrative that is always relevant.  Hulu is hoping the message connects to modern audiences as it brings the award winning classic novel to the world of modern day streaming in the form of a series.  “Invisible Man” is the story of a Black man who realizes that the color of his skin has made him socially invisible in America. The main character is never given a name but his identity is that of every Black man.  “The Invisible Man” received critical acclaim at its publishing with one critic noting that Ellison was “a master at catching the shape, flavor and sound of the common vagaries of human character and experience.”  Hulu has successfully adapted other literary masterpieces to video including its Emmy Award winning adaptation of Margaret Atwood’s “The Handmaid’s Tale”.  Hulu execs say “Invisible Man” fits in with their strategy to “tell intimate character stories…that have really strong, resonant and permanent dramatic underpinnings.  Hulu is currently working to draft a script, no word on how before soon the “Invisible Man” will go into production.

“Star Wars” Actor Signs on for Spike Lee’s “Black Klansman”   Spike Lee has joined forces with “Get Out” writer, director Jordan Peele to bring a crime thriller about the KKK to the big screen.  “Star Wars” actor Adam Driver  is now onboard to join John David Washington for the story of how a Black  man infiltrated and rose to the top ranks of  a local KKK.  Driver will star as an undercover police officer working alongside detective Ron Stallworth(Washington) who launched the covert mission.  Lee penned the screenplay and will also direct.  As “Black Klansman” is still in development, Driver can be seen as the villainous Kylo Ren in the next installment of the “Star Wars” saga “The Last Jedi” which hits theaters nationwide this December.

50 Cent, Gerard Butler in the Action Packed “Den of Thieves”   Fifty and Butler team up for this heist film that’s called a modern spin on the classic film “Heat”.  The story revolves around an elite team of bank robbers who are planning their biggest heist of a target that has never been robbed before–the Federal Reserve.  In a haul that could bring them billions, the robbers aren’t the only elite team at work and are being tracked by a special team of cops with the L.A. Sheriff’s Department.  Fifty’s used to gritty, action-packed drama thanks to his high rated”Power” on STARZ. Butler has starred in box office blockbusters like “300: Rise of an Empire” and  “Olympus Has Fallen” opposite Morgan Freeman.  Also joining the cast is Ice Cube’s son O’Shea Jackson Jr. who also starred in “Straight Outta Compton”.  The film is slated to hit theaters in January, but until then here’s your First Reel Look at the trailer for “Den of Thieves”.

For this week’s look at the movers and shakers in Black Hollywood, that’s a wrap!
