Can you picture this one or would it just be another bad casting call?
Halle’s been talking about her ‘dream’ of playing activist Angela Davis for a while now and in her recent interview with InStyle magazine, she brought it up once again, hinting that she’d like to make a film that “explores Angela’s Communist beliefs.
“Her story is so fascinating. I would love to bring it to the screen. I would pick her brain to have a better understanding of her affiliation with the Black Panthers and that period from the 1960s.”
Back in early 2011, Halle spoke to Jet magazine about her eagerness to portray Davis…
“I’ll probably never get to play it in my life and I am going to be sad until the day I die, but I really want to play Angela Davis badly. So badly.”
“I just think she’s fascinating and I think I would love to tell a story from her perspective about that time in our history and what it was all about with the Black Panthers,”.
We’re not going to cast any judgement (yet). We just hope Halle gets a green light from Angela and her family if she plans to move forward on this one.
