A24 debuts first trailer & poster for biographical dramedy Zola
Over a year after the film first debuted to rave reviews at the Sundance Film Festival, A24 has finally debuted the first poster and trailer for the biographical dramedy Zola based on the wild tale the titular woman revealed over the course of a Twitter thread in 2015. The trailer and poster can be viewed below!
The film stars Taylour Paige (Boogie, Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom) in the titular role alongside Riley Keough (The Girlfriend Experience, Logan Lucky), Nicholas Braun (The Big Ugly, Succession) as Derrek, Colman Domingo (Fear the Walking Dead, Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom) as X, Ari’el Stachel (Jessica Jones, Law & Order: Special Victims Unit) and Jason Mitchell (Straight Outta Compton, Kong: Skull Island).
Celebrated director Janicza Bravo (Gregory Go Boom, Lemon) helms the biographical dramedy on a script co-written by her and Jeremy O. Harris (Euphoria). The film had first begun development in 2016 with James Franco (The Disaster Artist) directing and producing the project, though amidst the wave of sexual misconduct allegations against him, he was replaced by Bravo as A24 acquired it. His brother, Dave (The Rental), is attached as a producer on the film.
Zola, which first premiered at the 2020 Sundance Film Festival, is set to hit theaters sometime this summer.
