Singer Mary J. Blige (“Mudbound,” “Rock of Ages”) has signed on to star in the horror thriller “Body Cam” for Paramount Players.
The story focuses on several LAPD police officers who are haunted by a malevolent spirit that is tied to the murder of a black youth at the hands of two white cops, all of which are caught on a body cam video that was destroyed in a cover-up.
Blige will play an officer who becomes rocked by visions and begins to investigate the cover-up. Richmond Riedel penned the script with re-writes by Nicholas McCarthy and John Ridley.
Said to be a tonal blend of “Get Out” and “End of Watch,” Malik Vitthal (“Imperial Dreams”) helms the film which is being produced by Matt Kaplan.
