Known for his comedy back in House Party, directorÂ Reginald Hudlin switches hats in directing the filmÂ MarshallÂ starring Chadwick Boseman. It goes through the life of young Thurgood Marshall as a lawyer.
“It’s rareÂ that I get to show my other side. I’ve always been veryÂ political and loved drama, ” explained Hudlin. He continued, “I wanted to make a movie that peopleÂ want to see…. I want to be in the must-see category.”
His friend producer Paula Wagner handed him the script knowing how big of a Thurgood Marshall fan. “I always was a big Thurgood Marshall fan. AlwaysÂ felt that he was underrated. I was really excited for a chance to tell this story that so many people don’t know.”
MarshallÂ will be out in theaters Friday, October 13, 2017.
