Joe Louis Biopic In The Works
The group obtained rights through the boxer’s son, Joe Louis Barrow II, who will also produce the film. The movie was originally purposed to be a stage play, but Eisenburg pitched the idea of a film and brought Duke and Adler on as partners.
Joe Louis is a symbolic athlete in black boxing history. He is recognized for knocking out a Nazi in the first round during the World War II era.
We love seeing our black super heroes on the big screen!
