The film Black and White starring Kevin Costner, Octavia Spencer, and Andre Holland has started shooting in New Orleans, LA.
It was recently announced that Holland was playing a leading role, he recently starred in the Jackie Robinson biopic 42.
Mxdwm.com says Holland will be playing a recent widower, a drug addict with whom Costner’s character (the father to Holland’s late wife) will contend with for custody of Holland’s biracial daughter/Costner’s granddaughter. Also in the picture is the Holland’s mother (Spencer), the child’s grandmother. As the title suggests, race is to play a major role in the story, exacerbated by Costner’s character blaming Holland’s for the death of their daughter/wife.
Black and White is being directed by Mike Binder.
