After years attempting to work together on social unrest drama
, Hugh Jackman and
director Lee Daniels will finally be collaborating on
Orders To Kill.
The film will follow William Pepper (played by Jackman), a controversial lawyer who argues that James Earl Ray wasn’t responsible for shooting Martin Luther King, Jr.
According to the LA Times , Daniels’ film will be an unconventional examination of the case that tracks Pepper’s one-man campaign – no surprise when the script’s based on Pepper’s own book.
Daniels’ first film, Precious was a smash hit that earned its young lead - Gabourey Sidibe - an Oscar nomination. However his second film, The Paperboy , was ridiculed somewhat at Cannes this year.
Hopefully Orders To Kill will get the director back on track after all the promise how showed with Precious .
