There is no denying that SELMA director and star, Ava DuVernay and David Oyelowo respectively make an excellent collaboration and definitely bring out the best in each other creatively – and it seems there is no stopping them.
After working together for a second time on the Oscar-nominated Martin Luther King Jr. drama SELMA, it seems the dynamic duo are currently working on a new project – an untitled film set around Hurricane Katrina in 2005.
DuVernay will write, produce and direct the project and Oyelowo is set to produce and star in the film. The details are still quite limited as of yet, but it is believed that it will combine a murder mystery and a love story.
DuVernay spoke to Variety to discuss the plans for the film:
“The story we’re interested in will explore the complexities of intimate relationships within times of chaos, while also examining the chaos itself. I’m looking forward to the journey.”
Will it be a case of third time’s the charm for the DuVernay and Oyelowo? The new project will see them collaborating for a third time after 2012’s MIDDLE OF NOWHERE and of course, SELMA.
A production date has not yet been confirmed for the film, but we can’t wait to hear the news as it unfolds.
