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 (WonderZootopiaThe Get Down), Rafael Casal (The Away Team, Ricochet in Reverse) and Janina Gavankar (True BloodStar 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: SoldadoValley GirlUncle Drew and I Feel Pretty. On August 10, it’s up against Scarface, The Meg and an untitled Anne Hathaway/Rebel Wilson comedy.
