John Boyega Joins Kathryn Bigelow’s ‘Detroit Riot” Film

The Star Wars actor is starting to use his momentum in the best way he and his agent can, so far so good. With Boyega joining Legendary’s sequel to the Guillermo del Toro creation that was Pacific Rim, Boyega will also headline The Hurt Locker director’s next film about the Detroit riots.

It will be a crime drama and will be the first film the director has made since her other Iraq War drama Zero Dark Thirty. 

Her regular writer Mark Boal will write the film that is set to shoot in Detroit and Boston. The film has no details on the plot or much else for that matter and does not have a studio attached to the project.

Let’s just hope we can hear more about this film and Boyega’s other project The Circle which would have him in a film with Emma Thompson and Tom Hanks.
