Chadwick Boseman to Portray Thurgood Marshall

Chadwick Boseman seems to have a thing for biopics. First, he portrayed Jackie Robinson in 42.Then he returned to the big screen as James Brown in Get On Up. Now, he will transform into Thurgood Marshall for Marshall. 

The film will follow the first African-American Supreme Court justice as he tackles one of his earliest legal cases that occurred long before his historic appointment.

According to producers, the icon is “sent to conservative Connecticut to defend a black chauffeur against his wealthy socialite employer in a sexual assault and attempted murder trial that quickly became tabloid fodder.”

No word yet on a release date, but filming will begin this week. Stay tuned.
