Lakeith Stanfield, Daniel Kaluuya, Jesse Plemons, and Martin Sheen star in this biopic drama-thriller about the Federal Bureau of Investigation infiltration of the Illinois Black Panther Party, led by Fred Hampton. It's also expected to be part of the 2020-2021 awards season chatter (the film isn't due out until February, but the Oscars pushed qualification dates to February 28 due to 2020's coronavirus-hindered release dates).
Daniel Kaluuya plays the Black Panther Party chairman and his "Get Out" co-star Lakeith Stanfield plays Federal Bureau of Investigation informant William O'Neill who agrees to infiltrate the group in the late 1960s. Will he align with the forces of good? The cast includes Jesse Plemons, Dominique Fishback, Lil Rea Howery and (in the role of Federal Bureau of Investigation director J. Edgar Hoover) Martin Sheen.
The additional cast consists of Jesse Plemons (Breaking Bad), Ashton Sanders (Moonlight: Under the Moonlight), Jermaine Fowler (BoJack Horseman), Algee Smith (Detroit in Rebellion), Lil Rel Howery (Run!) And Robert Longstreet (Doctor Sleep). On the same day, it will begin a 31-day streaming period on HBO Max as well.
