Focus Features has revealed the first trailer for Spike Lee‘s latest joint, BlacKkKlansman, the real-life buddy cop film from Jordan Peele‘s Monkeypaw Productions, QC Entertainment and Blumhouse. The film stars John David Washington (Ballers), Adam Driver (Star Wars: The Last Jedi), Laura Harrier (Spider-Man: Homecoming) and Topher Grace (That ’70s Show) as KKK leader David Duke.
The film is the true story of how African-American police officer Ron Stallworth successfully infiltrated the Ku Klux Klan in 1978 Colorado Springs, Colorado. By pretending to be a white supremacist over the phone and sending a white officer in his place for in-person meetings, he was able to become the head of the local KKK chapter and sabotage their activities from within.
