The project will be produced by Marvel's Black Panther director Ryan Coogler.

Black Panther co-writer/director Ryan Coogler is set to produce the film Jesus Was My Homeboy about the life of Black Panther activist Fred Hampton, according to Deadline.

Assuming the deals are eventually worked out, Kaluuya will play Fred Hampton, an Illinois-born honors student who was active in the NAACP, brokered a non-aggression pact between two of Chicago's gangs, coined the phrase "rainbow coalition", and rose to prominence in the Black Panther Party on both the state and national level.

Kaluuya is now in talks to portray Hampton, who rose to the ranks of the Chicago branch of the political party in the late '60s, and Stanfield is in talks to play O'Neal, who was recruited by the FBI following multiple arrests for vehicle thefts and impersonating federal officers, coming to a deal with the agency to act as their informant in exchange for a monthly stipend and dropping of the charges.

The committee's report alleges that the major drivers behind the effort to transfer of US nuclear technology were retired Gen. The meeting was organized by IP3 global - the consulting group that first drafted the proposal in question.

The film will follow the rise and untimely demise of Hampton as seen through O'Neal's eyes. But his charisma, oratorial skills and swift ascent marked him out as a threat in the eyes of the Federal Bureau of Investigation and in 1969 he and fellow Panther Mark Clark were killed during a controversial raid by a tactical unit carrying out orders from the Chicago Police Department and the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Hampton was said to be a charismatic guy with "substantial oratorical gifts", and it seems like Kaluuya should be able to do Hampton justice on the big screen.

Widows and Black Panther star Kaluuya is now filming Universal's Queen And Slim.

Coogler is producing "Space Jam 2". Stanfield recently shot the murder mystery "Knives Out", and stars in FX's "Atlanta". King made his feature debut with 2013 comedy-drama "Newlyweeds".
