Letitia Wright (Black Panther star) is joining the American remake of the 2017 French comedy-drama film, Le Brio, which is being produced by John Legend’s Get Lifted banner.
French producer Dimitri Rassam has teamed up with Get Lifted Film Company for the project, where Letitia will play the leading female role. The original Le Brio was directed by Yval Attal and told the story of a young French-Arab woman (originally played by Camelia Jordana) who enrolls in a University with hopes of becoming a lawyer, but faces a racism-tainted rant from her professor, known for his outbursts, who is then forced to become her mentor.
Wow, it sounds like a lot is going on in this film! The project is expected to go into production sometime next year.
