Jaden Smith Cast As Trayvon Martin

In one of the most shocking pieces of news to come out of Hollywood in some time, a feature film based on the life of George Zimmerman is reportedly in the works with none other than Will Smith at the helm. Smith’s Overbrook Entertainment (I Am Legend, Hancock, The Karate Kid) has jumped on-board to finance and produce the film which is scheduled to hit theaters Spring 2015.

As polarizing of a figure that Zimmerman is, the film is sure to spark controversy among movie goers. In a statement sent to reporters, Smith stated, “It’s obvious that he’s not America’s sweetheart right now but his story is intriguing and it needs to be heard. Hitler wasn’t popular. Does that mean his story is any less interesting? Of course not. Slave masters aren’t popular but 12 Years a Slave was phenomenal. Wait until you see the finished product and judge for yourself.”

George Zimmerman is slated to receive a shade under $3.2 million from Overbrook Entertainment for his role as a consultant. No further details have been given regarding the totality of Zimmerman’s role with the production.

Jaden Smith is confirmed to be cast in the lead role of Trayvon Martin. Wilmer Valderrama is the front-runner to play the role of George Zimmerman. Production on the film set to begin in the Fall of 2014.

    She called $250,000 middle class? That’s almost five times the median family income. Somebody has too much money, and her initials are H.R.C.

    blacks aren’t even human. they are fucking chimps.

  • Randy Steele

    Bound to be the worst movie of all time based off of BS and propaganda.
    One sided garbage made by someone that clearly had a bias towards traythug.

  • Len Thomas

    I am definitely looking forward to seeing the movie. I am willing to fund the movie if funds fall short.

    Whoever puts up the money to produce this travesty needs their head examined. Every cent spent would be better invested is a sewage treatment plane. An over abundance of red ink is called for; nobody should watch this propagandist trash.

  • Al Bundy

    I wont go see this movie, I am glad they are making it so Zimmerman gets a Payday
