Andre Holland will re-team with his “The Knick” director Steven Soderbergh for the new feature “High Flying Bird” which will begin shooting this month.
Tarell Alvin McCraney, who co-wrote the Oscar-winning “Moonlight” which starred Holland in a key role, is penning the script for the film in which Holland plays a sports agent who presents his rookie NBA client with ‘an intriguing and controversial business opportunity’ during an NBA lockout.
Soderbergh recently released the experimental “Mosaic” on HBO, has “Unsane” opening in cinemas in April and is set to produce and potentially direct the action-thriller “Planet Kill”. Holland will soon be seen in a leading role in Hulu’s “Castle Rock” series set in the world of Stephen King’s novels.
