Newcomer Devon Terrell (“Codes of Conduct”) has been cast as a young Barack Obama in the upcoming indie drama “Barry” for Black Bear Pictures and Cinetic Media.
The story explores the time when Obama was a college student in New York City in 1981 and forged key relationships, including with a fellow student (Anya Taylor-Joy).
“Vice” correspondent Vikram Gandhi directed the project from a script by “Go the F— to Sleep” author Adam Mansbach. Shooting begins in April. Teddy Schwarzman, Dana O’Keefe and Ben Stillman are producing.
