Isaiah Washington Will Star As Washington DC Sniper In Upcoming Film “Blue Caprice”

Isaiah Washington Will Star As Washington DC Sniper In Upcoming Film "Blue Caprice"

Don’t know how we missed this tidbit but looks like actor Isaiah Washington will be starring in Blue Caprice, a film based on the sniper that terrorized the Washington DC area and Virginia back in 2002.

According to BoxofficeIndia…”Washington will play John Allen Williams, who joined the Nation of Islam and changed his surname to Muhammad years before going on a shooting spree with a young accomplice, Lee Boyd Malvo, that took the lives of at least ten people.”

Muhammad was eventually convicted and executed.

Producers on the project include Isen Robbins and Aimee Schoof of Intrinsic Value Films along with Will Rowbotham of Prolific Entertainment.

Filming is expected to start next month in New York City. No word on additional casting. I’m actually looking forward to seeing this one!

@AccidentalVisitor Tequan Richmond is 18, John Boyega is 19. Not a big difference.

Excellent choice. Isaiah is an excellent actor who will give a stellar performance.

They look similar.

{{{ Dream casting would have John Boyega (of ‘Attack the Block’) play Lee Malvo. }}}

Interesting choice but I think Boyega is a tad too old for the role now.

This sounds sort of sadistic but I’ve been waiting awhile for this movie to be made also. Heck, I lived in the DC area during those times and remember all the advice about not walking in a staright line when I was outside (makes one an easy target). Unfortunately the casting of I. Washington suggests this could be low-rent. Washington is a good actor but has been kind of blacklisted as of late.

Isiah’s made some bad decisions, but he’s pretty talented. I was just watching “Clockers” last night.

Anyway, Lee Malvo is going to be played by Tequan Richmond who’s been on some crime shows this year but is probably most known for his role as middle child Drew on “Everybody Hates Chris”.
He does have the look, moreso then they guy from the tv movie with Charles Dutton.

Tequan Richmond’s momager confirmed this, as did Isiah Washington through his twitter

Cool.

Will this be based on the ex-wife’s book? Hope so, but probably not.
