Flip and get more details on Nate Parker, one of Hollywood’s brightest shinning stars…
The Birth of a Nation writer/director/star/producer Nate Parker has sold a new project to Legendary.
Parker, whose drama about slave rebellion leader Nat Turner will hit theaters in October, will once again write, direct and produce this new project. It’s an original idea from Parker, but the logline is being kept under wraps.
Birth of a Nation took Sundance by storm in February. It sold for a record $17.5 million deal to Fox Searchlight, and also won the Audience Award and Grand Jury Prize.
Parker was previously known for his work as an actor in films like Beyond the Lights, but stopped acting to focus on making his passion project, Birth of a Nation. Since its success, he’s also signed on to write the real-life wrestling story based on Lisa Fenn’s memoir Carry On for Walden Media.
Parker is repped by CAA and Anonymous Content.
Nate Parker is carving his name in the concrete walls of Hollywood and soon we expect to see his hands and feet imortalized on the Hollywood Walk of Fame if he continues with great films.
We look forward to Nate’s new project coming from Legendary.
Birth of a Nation hits theaters on October 7, 2016.
