Open Road Films Acquires the Rights to Chadwick Boseman-Starrer 'Marshall'
Open Road Films has acquired all U.S. rights to Marshall, starring Chadwick Boseman (who has made his arrival in the MCU as Black Panther).
Here, Boseman plays legendary attorney and Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall, with Josh Gad starring as lawyer Sam Friedman. Kate Hudson, Dan Stevens, James Cromwell, Sterling K. Brown, and Keesha Sharp round out the cast.
Reginald Hudlin, producer for Django Unchained, is directing and Paula Wagner is producing. Marshall began principal photography on May 23. It details a particular, true incident in Thurgood Marshall's life, in which he is sent to defend a black chauffeur against his wealthy socialite employer in a sexual assault and attempted murder trial that became tabloid fodder.
