From trailblazing, Emmy-winning novelist Lena Waithe( Netflix’s Master of None) and Melina Matsoukas, the utopian administrator of some of this generation’s most powerful pop-culture events, including Beyonce’s “Formation” and the Nike “Equality” campaign, comes Makeready’s unflinching new drama, Queen& Slim.
While on a forgettable first year together in Ohio, a pitch-black humankind( Get Out’s Daniel Kaluuya) and a black gal( Jodie Turner-Smith, in her first starring feature-film role ), are attracted over for a minor traffic infraction. The statu rises, with abrupt and appalling reactions, when the three men kills the police officer in self-defense. Terrified and in horror for their lives, the man, a retail hire, and the status of women, a criminal defense lawyer, are forced to go on the run. But the accidents is captured on video and get viral, and the couple unwittingly become a symbol of damage, horror, remorse and ache for parties throughout the country.
As they drive, these two unlikely fugitives will detect themselves and one another in the most dire and desperate of circumstances, and will forge a depth and potent adore that will reveal their shared humanity and shape the rest of their lives.
Joining a bequest of cinemas such as Bonnie and Clyde and Thelma& Louise, Queen& Slim is a potent, consciousness-raising love story that meets the overwhelming human toll of racism and the life-shattering price of violence.
Waithe wrote the write based on an original suggestion by bestselling author James Frey( A Million Little Pieces, Katerina ). The feature-film directorial debut from Melina Matsoukas( executive creator of HBO’s Insecure) performs Academy Award( r) nominee Daniel Kaluuya as “Slim” and rising star Jodie Turner-Smith( Syfy’s Nightflyers ), as “Queen.”
Waithe grows the film via her firm, Hillman Grad Yield, along with Matsoukas via her creation corporation, De La Revolucion Films. Frey raises via his creation corporation, 3BlackDot, alongside Andrew Coles and Michelle Knudsen.
Queen& Slim is financed by Makeready and will be distributed by Universal Pictures worldwide, with eOne handling distribution in hand-picked territories including the U.K. and Canada.
