According to Variety,
Rafe Spall (“Prometheus”) and Jacqueline Emerson (“The Hunger Games“) are attached to star in indie drama “Son of the South,” a new project from Barry Alexander Brown that Spike Lee is set to exec produce.
Pic will be based on Bob Zellner’s autobiography “The Wrong Side of Murder Creek,” which was published by New South Books. Tome chronicles the white author’s life in Alabama, where he grew up as the son of a minister and grandson of a KKK member before joining the Civil Rights Movement.
Spall will play Zellner, while Emerson will play his fiancee, Carol Anne. Supporting cast includes Marianne Jean Baptiste, Lou Gossett Jr., Clint Dyer and Saskia Reeves. Chaka Forman is set to play his own father, civil rights leader Jim Forman.
