Seth Gordon To Helm A Racial Injustice Drama
Filmmaker, producer, screenwriter and film editor Seth Gordon is known for films like 'Baywatch' and 'Horrible Bosses'. The director is now all geared up for his next venture which will be based on a true story. If reports are to be believed, Gordon’s next will be based on a 2005 book, 'Tulia: Race, Cocaine, and Corruption in a Small Texas Town' which is written by Nate Blakeslee.
The plot of the story revolves around racial injustice, poverty, desperation and the American war against drugs. It will highlight the infamous 1999 case that saw dozens of men, most of them African-American, arrested for a drug scandal based on the word of an unreliable cop. The film’s rights from author Nate Blakeslee has been acquired by Mubina Rattonsey's L.A.-based production, Zero Gravity Motion Pictures.
Talking about the flick, Gordon said, "Mubina has found an extraordinary true story that is very relevant in today's political climate. I'm excited to bring this important and poignant story to a wider audience, to call attention to what happened in Tulia, and to showcase the incredible and heroic work Vanita Gupta did for its citizens".
Gordon's last flick was 'Baywatch' which starred Dwayne Johnson, Zac Efron and Priyanka Chopra.
