Justin Chadwick Signing On To Direct Signal Hill Movie

17 June 2016 12:28 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The developing film project about the infamous Signal Hill case is moving closer to reality, with the news that director Justin Chadwick is in talks to take the helm. The movie will see Marvel star Anthony Mackie play the role of lawyer Johnnie Cochran – who later made a name for himself representing clients such as O.J Simpson and Michael Jackson, but began his career as an advocate for black victims of police brutality.

The Signal Hill case arose in 1981, when Cal State Long Beach football star Ron Settles was arrested for speeding in Los Angeles County, and was later found hanging in his jail cell. While the La police insisted that the cause of Settles’ death was suicide, the family vehemently disagreed, until Johnnie Cochran arranged for the body of the late 21 year-old to be exhumed. Further examination indicated that Settles had been choked to death, and his family »

Anthony Mackie’s Johnnie Cochran Movie Draws ‘Mandela’ Director

14 June 2016 3:41 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

British director Justin Chadwick is in negotiations to helm Anthony Mackie’s untitled Johnnie Cochran biopic.

Chadwick directed 2013’s “Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom,” “The Other Boleyn Girl” and the upcoming “Tulip Fever.” David McMillan penned the script for the Cochran project.

The film will be centered on the 1981 wrongful death case of college football star Ron Settles. Signal Hill police ruled that Settles had hung himself in a city jail cell in despair over his arrest for speeding, but Cochran suspected foul play and persuaded the Settles family to request that the body be exhumed for an autopsy, which showed Settles had been choked to death.

The Settles family was subsequently awarded $1 million in a civil suit against the Southern California city. Cochran is best known for his defense of O.J. Simpson in the 1995 murder case in which Simpson was acquitted.

Robbie Brenner, The Firm’s president of film, will produce along with Mackie and Jason Spire. Jeff Kwatinetz will be exec producer, along with McMillan.

Mackie was most recently seen in “Captain America: Civil War.”

Chadwick is represented by UTA. Mackie is repped by UTA and Inspire.

27 February 2016 10:27 AM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Eddie Redmayne has one Oscar to his name and will bid for another tomorrow, but the British actor says he was laughably miscast in one of his early film roles. In “The Other Boleyn Girl,” Redmayne said he wasn’t a natural fit for the “dashing and big and strong” character of William Stafford, the husband of Scarlett Johansson‘s Mary Boleyn.
