Brian Tyree Henry (“Atlanta,” “Widows”) is in negotiations to star in the thriller “They Cloned Tyrone” for MACRO. “Creed II” scribe Juel Taylor will make his directing debut and co-write the script with Tony Rettenmaier.
The story follows a series of eerie events that thrust an unlikely trio onto the trail of a nefarious government conspiracy in a pulpy mystery caper.
Taylor, Rettenmaier, Stephen ‘Dr.’ Love, Charles D. King and Kim Roth will produce. MACRO (“Mudbound”) won the project in a competitive multi-studio bidding war and it comes as the company has just entered a first-look deal with Warner Bros. Pictures Group for film projects.
