“Marshall” is the upcoming American biographical thriller film directed by Reginald Hudlin and written by Michael and Jacob Koskoff starring Chadwick Boseman about the first African-American Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall and one of the first cases of his early career.
As the nation teeters on the brink of WWII, a nearly bankrupt NAACP sends Thurgood Marshall (Chadwick A. Boseman) to conservative Connecticut to defend a black chauffeur against his wealthy socialite employer in a sexual assault and attempted murder trial that quickly became tabloid fodder. In need of a high profile victory but muzzled by a segregationist court, Marshall is partnered with Samuel Friedman (Josh Gad), a young Jewish lawyer who has never tried a case.
OMG, I can not wait to see this movie. And the cast is phenomenal.
The film stars Chadwick Boseman, Kate Hudson, Josh Gad, Sterling K. Brown, Dan Stevens, James Cromwell, Sophia Bush, Jussie Smollett and Rozonda “Chilli” Thomas.
Marshall opens in theaters October 13, 2017. Check your local listings for theaters and showtimes.
