Danny Glover Set To Star In Indie Based On Real Story Of White Supremacist Who Takes Black Family Hostage

Danny Glover will lend his acting talents to another indie feature project; this one sitlted Supremacy, which he’ll star in alongside Joe Anderson (The Grey, The River) and Dawn Olivieri (she plays Don Cheadle’s ex-wife on Showtime’s House Of Lies).

The film is said to be based on a true story about a recently paroled white supremacist who, “after killing a police officer, takes an African American family hostage.

Well then… color me interested, especially if Danny Glover is involved. I wonder what real-life case it’s based on. I can’t recall anything at the moment.

The film will be directed by Deon Taylor whose most recent and maybe most prominent work was the 2010 indie horror/thriller titled Chain Letter (didn’t see it).

Principal photography is scheduled to start this month. 

No other casting has been announced, but I’m assuming Glover will likely play a member of the black family taken hostage – maybe the father or grandfather. Stay tuned…

By the way,. I should note that Deon Taylor is African American. I don’t think we’ve covered him much here on S&A, but he’s now officially on my filmmaker “watch list” as well as this film.

Doing a bit of research on him, I learned he’s actually been quite busy, in both TV and film, quietly building a brand for himself withh Deon Taylor Enterprises.
