In 2005, the drama "Crash" was released, combining the tragic stories of several people, and, to the surprise of many, it was Paul Haggis's film that ultimately won the Oscar for Best Picture. Now studio Warner Bros. intends to shoot a tape that will be similar in atmosphere and theme to Collision .|
As the portal The Tracking Board has exclusively learned, the major has acquired the rights to film the book Tell the Truth and Shame the Devil . The speech in the memoirs is about an incident that occurred in the United States on August 9, 2014. Then 18-year-old African American Michael Brown was shot and killed by white police officer Darren Wilson in Ferguson, Missouri. The tragedy spawned a racial conflict that had long been brewing in the city - mass protests and clashes began, forcing society to take a sober view of the problem of relations between African Americans and law enforcement agencies.
Brown was suspected of robbing a store. He was unarmed at the time of the shooting, but the Department of Justice found witnesses who claimed that Brown raised his hands in surrender, unreliable. The St. Louis County Grand Jury has decided not to bring Darren Wilson to trial. All charges against him were dropped, and the murder of Michael Brown was considered an act of self-defense.
One of the authors of the memoirs is Lesley McSudden , mother of Michael Brown . The book was published last year, and, according to the source, several large studios showed interest in it, but in the end the winner was Warner Bros. Now the major is looking for a suitable scriptwriter for the project, who will be able to correctly present such an ambiguous problem.
