Tamir Rice Film In The Works
A film is in the works about the shooting death of 12-year-old Tamir Rice.
On November 22, 2014, Tamir was fatally shot by Cleveland police in a park while holding a toy gun.
Shadow & Act exclusively reports:
Blue Angel Entertainment’s Korstiaan Vandiver and entrepreneur Lionel Ntasano, their team and Ms. Rice have exclusive rights to produce the film, which will be penned by Vandiver, Rice and Danielle Marshay Lee. Vandiver and Lee are set to co-direct.
Samaria Rice says, “I’m honored and very grateful to (Korstiaan and Danielle) for believing in me and this legacy for Tamir.”
“We are just as honored to have the opportunity to bring this story to life and we are all very excited to start this journey together. Tamir’s narrative is so timely and yet so long overdue,” said Vandiver.
I will keep you posted as more information about this project becomes available.
