Ooh, the new Spike Lee-directed, Jordan Peele-produced joint ‘BlacKkKlansman‘ looks very promising.
The film tells the true story of a Black man who infiltrated the KKK. It just screened at the Cannes Film festival, where it received a standing ovation. The cast includes John David Washington, Adam Driver, Laura Harrier and Topher Grace.
Produced by: Sean McKittrick, Raymond Mansfield, Jason Blum, Jordan Peele, Spike Lee, and Shaun Redick.

Story, from the official press release: “From visionary filmmaker Spike Lee comes the incredible true story of an American hero. It’s the early 1970s, and Ron Stallworth (John David Washington) is the first African-American detective to serve in the Colorado Springs Police Department. Determined to make a name for himself, Stallworth bravely sets out on a dangerous mission: infiltrate and expose the Ku Klux Klan. The young detective soon recruits a more seasoned colleague, Flip Zimmerman (Adam Driver), into the undercover investigation of a lifetime. Together, they team up to take down the extremist hate group as the organization aims to sanitize its violent rhetoric to appeal to the mainstream. Produced by the team behind the Academy-Award® winning Get Out.”
