Just recently, we found out that HBO would be adapting Ta-Nehisi Coates’ best-selling letter to his son titled, Between the World and Me.
The project has just cast many of Hollywood’s greatest stars!
At this time, we know that Courtney B. Vance, Angela Basset, Oprah Winfrey, Phylicia Rashad, Pauletta Washington, Susan Kelechi Watson, Joe Morton, Tariq “Black Thought” Trotter, and Alicia Garza (founder of Black Lives Matter) have been cast for this special project.
This special will include readings from Coates’ book and elements from the orginal apdated project by New York City’s Apollo Theater back in 2018.
There will be archival footage, documentary footage, and animation showcased from the lives of these stars. Kamilah Forbes will direct this project.
This project is expected to premiere this fall.
