Lena Waithe Pens Love Story "Queen and Slim" Starring Daniel Kaluuya

And the checks keep coming! We love Black collaboration!

Lena Waithe adds another project to her roster with latest project Queen and Slim. It stars Daniel Kaluuya of Get Out and The Widows, as well as beauty Jodie Turner Smith.

According to Shadow & Act, "Queen & Slim explores America’s social and political climate through the lens of a genre-defying love story. When a Black man and Black woman on a first date are pulled over by a police officer at a traffic stop, their life goes awry. Forced to kill him in self-defense, rather than turn themselves in, they must go on the run to Cuba."

The film will also be directed by mega star Melina Matsoukas, who has graced HBO's Insecure with her creative touches, and of course the juggernaut film by Beyoncé, Lemonade.

The film debuts November 29, 2019.
