Amazon Studios has set Winston Duke (Black Panther) to will star as Marcus Garvey in Marked Man. Garvey was a political activist who was a key figure of Black nationalism in the 20th Century. Andrew Dosunmu will direct the drama and Jesse Williams (Little Fires Everywhere) and DeWanda Wise (She’s Gotta Have It) are in talks to star.
The film is partly inspired by the Colin Grant biography, Negro with a Hat: The Rise and Fall of Marcus Garvey. Script is by acclaimed playwright Kwame Kwei-Armah, which Esther Douglas developed with the support of the BFI Film Fund.
Mark Gordon (Ray Donovan) of Mark Gordon Pictures is producing with Jackson Pictures’ Matt Jackson (The Trial of the Chicago 7), Glendon Palmer and Douglas. Robert Teitel, Kwei-Armah and Jackson Pictures’ Joanne Lee will be executive producers, along with Kwei-Armah.
