Joe Louis Biopic In The Works

Joe Louis

A biopic chronicling legendary Joe Louis is in the works. Variety reported that producers Bill Duke, Gil Adler and Joel Eisenburg will be developing the project.

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!
