The world of cinema has presented us with many excellent creative tandems. One of the most successful modern film unions was formed by the director Ryan Coogler and the actor Michael B. Jordan , the fruit of which became the highly social film "Fruitvale Station" and the boxing drama Creed: The Rocky Legacy. Already in February next year, the talented duo will delight the audience with their third joint film - the superhero action movie Black Panther.|
As it became known to the edition Deadline , Kugler and Jordan are ready to join forces in work on another intriguing project. Ryan and Michael will meet on the set of the biographical drama Wrong Answer * ( Wrong Answer ), which tells about one of the most high-profile scandals in the history of the American educational system. The plot of the tape will be based on the article of the same name by Rachel Aviv, published in The New Yorker magazine in July 2014.
In 2001, the US government initiated a major reform of the school system called No Child Left Behind . Since its introduction, students' knowledge has been tested using standardized tests like the USA Unified State Exam. The further fate of not only schoolchildren, but also the educational institutions themselves began to depend on the successful passing of the exam. Schools were eligible for additional funding only if their students showed high test results.
In just a decade, many of America's high schools were on the brink of bankruptcy. To save Atlanta's Parks Middle School from closure, Damani Lewis math teacher decided to print test envelopes and give his students the correct answers. When the fraud was exposed, the US Department of Education launched a veritable witch hunt and began massively bringing Lewis' colleagues to court. Thanks to the Atlanta scandal, all the major shortcomings of the No Child Left Behind program have finally been made public. Already at the end of 2015, the US government decided on a new school reform - “ Every Student Succeeds ”.
The adaptation of the article Rachel Aviv for the big screen will be done by the famous American writer, journalist and comic book writer Ta-Nehisi Coates , who had no previous experience of working as a screenwriter. Jordan will play Damani Lewis and Coogler will direct the biopic.
The desire to support the project has already been expressed by the New Regency and Plan B studios. The all-star production team for the film will include Ryan Coogler , Arnon Milchan (Fight Club), Dede Gardner (12 Years a Slave), Jeremy Kleiner (OA) and Brad Pitt (Fury). .
