Spike Lee and Jordan Peele’s Black Klansman Sets Release Date

After the success of Get Out, Jordan Peele announced that he would be continuing to make social thrillers. So the announcement of a collaboration between Peele and the king of social films, Spike Lee, was met with much excitement. Now months after this announcement, the film mega-duo is presenting news that Black Klansman, will arrive in theaters on August 10th. Shadow and Act details the film’s description:

From visionary director Spike Lee comes the provocative story based on Ron Stallworth’s real life as Colorado Springs’s first African-American police officer who went undercover to infiltrate the Ku Klux Klan. Unbelievably, Detective Stallworth (John David Washington) and his partner Flip Zimmerman (Adam Driver) penetrate the KKK at its highest levels to thwart its attempt to take over the city. Produced by the team behind the Academy-Award® winning Get Out, Spike Lee uses his trademark take-no-prisoner style and humor to tell this story often missing from the history books.
