Gugu Mbatha-Raw to Star in Thriller ‘Fast Color’ for ‘La La Land,’ ‘Jackie’ Producers
Gugu Mbatha-Raw will star in thriller “Fast Color” for “La La Land” producer Jordan Horowitz via Original Headquarters and “Jackie” producers Mickey Liddell and Pete Shilaimon via Ld Entertainment.
“Miss Stevens” director Julia Hart is on board to helm from a screenplay she wrote with Horowitz. Principal photography will commence in New Mexico on March 13. Ld is fully financing the project.
Mbatha-Raw will portray a woman forced to go on the run when her superhuman abilities are discovered. Years after having abandoned her family, the only place she has left to hide is home.
“This is exactly the kind of movie I want to see in the theater – three generations of strong women finding their power,” Liddell said. “Gugu and Julia are extraordinary talents and I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to work with them both on this special project. »
