Universal Pictures has released the very first trailer for director Peter Farrelly's (one half of the Farrelly brothers directing duo) upcoming solo directed project, Green Book. The upcoming road trip drama stars Viggo Mortensen and Academy Award winner Mahershala Ali along with Linda Cardellini. Green Book will mark a distinct departure from Peter Farrelly and his brother''s previous work like Dumb and Dumber, There's Something About Mary, and Kingpin.
Green Book tells the story of Tony Lip (Mortensen), an Italian-American bouncer with a seventh-grade education, who’s hired to drive Dr. Don Shirley (Ali), a world-class African-American pianist on a concert tour from Manhattan to the Deep South. Together, they must rely on the “Negro Motorist Green Book” to guide them to the few establishments that were then safe for Blacks. Confronted with racism, danger—as well as unexpected humanity and humor—they are forced to set aside differences to survive and thrive on the journey of a lifetime.
Green Book is set to hit theaters on November 21st.
