Oh, there is going to be hell to pay if she gets nominated (again)!
Academy Award-winning director Kathryn Bigelow has announced that her next project is going to focus on the 1967 Detroit riots.
Mark Boal –, Bigelow’s go-to screenwriter (he wrote Zero Dark Thirty and The Hurt Locker) – will handle the script for a 2017 release.
The riot took place late one July almost 50 years ago. Unrest resulted in 43 people dying, more than 340 getting injured, and, ahem, 7,000 buildings getting burned.
That sounds like...no joke.
