Paul Greengrass' 'Memphis': Martin Luther King, Jr. Movie Back OnBy: huffingtonpost
Almost two years ago, director and screenwriter Paul Greengrass announced plans to make a film called "Memphis." Now, Deadline reports that Greengrass is back at it with plans for "Memphis" to be his next project.
Greengrass ("The Bourne Ultimatum") wrote the script for "Memphis," which was to focus on the life of Martin Luther King, Jr. -- specifically in the time leading up to his death. The civil rights leader spent these days working to organize Memphis' sanitation workers.
NYMag had previously reported that Greengrass would be working with producer Scott Rudin ("Moneyball") on the film.
Deadline calls the script "Oscar caliber stuff that was a powerful testament to King’s struggle and his sacrifice."
