Set on the night of February 25, 1964, One Night in Miami follows a young Cassius Clay (before he became Muhammad Ali) as he emerges from the Miami Beach Convention Center the new World Heavyweight Boxing Champion. Against all odds, he defeated Sonny Liston and shocked the sports world. While crowds of people swarm Miami Beach to celebrate the match, Clay – unable to stay on the island because of Jim Crow-era segregation laws – instead spends the night at the Hampton House Motel in one of Miami’s historically black neighborhoods celebrating with three of his closest friends: activist Malcolm X, singer Sam Cooke and football star Jim Brown. The next morning, the four men emerge determined to define a new world for themselves and their people.
The cast for the film includes Kingsley Ben-Adir (High Fidelity) as Malcolm X, Eli Goree (Riverdale) as Cassius Clay, Aldis Hodge (The Invisible Man) as Jim Brown, Leslie Odom Jr. (Hamilton) as Sam Cooke, Lance Reddick (Bosch) as Brother Kareem, Jasmine Cephas Jones (The Photograph) as Barbara Cooke, Michael Imperioli (The Sopranos) as Angelo Dundee and Beau Bridges (Goliath) as Mr. Carlton.
One Night in Miami is directed by Oscar-winning actress Regina King from a screenplay written by Kemp Powers based on his 2013 play of the same name. The film has Jess Wu Calder and Keith Calder (Blindspotting, Anomalisa) attached as producers via their Snoot Entertainment banner as well as Jody Klein (The Rolling Stones Rock and Roll Circus) via ABKCO, King and Power.
