First BlacKkKlansman Photo: The Upcoming Spike Lee Film

First BlacKkKlansman photo released by Focus Features

After the recent announcement that Spike Lee’s BlacKkKlanman will open in theaters on August 10, 2018, Focus Features has released an official first-look photo from the upcoming film, which stars John David Washington (Ballers), Adam Driver (Star Wars: The Last Jedi), Laura Harrier (Spider-Man: Homecoming), and Topher Grace (Traffic). Check out the BlacKkKlansman photo below!

From visionary director Spike Lee comes the provocative story based on Ron Stallworth’s real life as Colorado Springs’s first African-American police officer who went undercover to infiltrate the Ku Klux Klan. Unbelievably, Detective Stallworth (John David Washington) and his partner Flip Zimmerman (Adam Driver) penetrate the KKK at its highest levels to thwart its attempt to take over the city.

Produced by the team behind the Academy Award-winning Get Out, Spike Lee uses his trademark take-no-prisoner style and humor to tell this story often missing from the history books.

BlacKkKlansman is being produced by Sean McKittrick and Raymond Mansfield for QC Entertainment, Jason Blum for Blumhouse, Jordan Peele for Monkeypaw, Spike Lee, and Shaun Redick. QC’s Edward H. Hamm Jr. will serve as Executive Producer. The movie was written by Charlie Wachtel, David Rabinowitz, Kevin Willmott, and Spike Lee.
