Daveed Diggs’ Blindspotting gets a release date from Lionsgate
Lionsgate has set a release date for the upcoming film Blindspotting. The film stars Daveed Diggs (Wonder, Zootopia, The Get Down), Rafael Casal (The Away Team, Ricochet in Reverse) and Janina Gavankar (True Blood, Star Wars: Battlefront II). Blindspotting was written by Diggs and Casal, and is directed by Carlos Lopez Estrada (High & Mighty).
Daveed Diggs and Rafael Casal wrote and star in the hip-hop-flavored buddy comedy, set in a rapidly gentrifying Oakland, California. The film tells the story of Collin (Diggs), who needs to make it through his last three days of probation for a chance at a new start, but his fast-talking childhood bestie, Miles (Casal), is a magnet for trouble. When Collin’s final countdown is interrupted by a life-changing missed curfew, their friendship is forced out of its comfortable existence and onto a spiraling collision course.
Blindspotting will hit theaters in limited release on July 27 and expand on August 10. The July 27 release date puts it five days after Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom and two days before Sicario 2: Soldado, Valley Girl, Uncle Drew and I Feel Pretty. On August 10, it’s up against Scarface, The Meg and an untitled Anne Hathaway/Rebel Wilson comedy.
