Franco, Skrein, Henry Join Jenkins’ “Beale”

Dave Franco, Ed Skrein and Brian Tyree Henry have joined the cast of Barry Jenkins’ “If Beale Street Could Talk” at Annapurna Pictures and Plan B. It’s a project that marks the filmmaker’s immediate follow-up to his Best Picture Oscar winner “Moonlight”.

Based on James Baldwin’s novel, the drama follows Tish (KiKi Layne), a newly engaged Harlem woman who races against the clock to prove her lover’s innocence while carrying their first child to term.

Stephan James, Colman Domingo and Regina King co-star. Jenkins wrote the screen adaptation and is producing via his Pastel label along with Annapurna Pictures and Plan B.
