Black Panther director Ryan Coogler and Charles D. Kingís MACRO (Mudbound) are producing movie Jesus Was My Homeboy, about iconic Black Panther Party member Fred Hampton, for Warner Bros.

Get Outís Daniel Kaluuya is in talks to star as activist Hampton with Atlanta and Sorry To Bother You star Lakeith Stanfield in talks to play William OíNeal, the man who betrayed Hampton to the FBI. Shaka King (Newlyweeds) will direct and produce from a script he wrote with Will Berson (Sea Oak).

The film will follow the rise and untimely demise of Hampton as seen through OíNealís eyes. It will explore how the FBI infiltrated the Black Panthers, the psychology of their informant and the notorious assassination of the young political leader who died aged only 21.

Executive producers are Sev Ohanian, Zinzi Coogler and MACROís Kim Roth and Poppy Hanks.

Hampton was a respected and talented grass-roots civil rights activist who rose to become chairman of the Illinois chapter of the Panthers organization and deputy chairman of the national BPP. But his charisma, oratorial skills and swift ascent marked him out as a threat in the eyes of the FBI 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 FBI. OíNeill had provided the FBI with detailed plans of Hamptonís apartment.

The deaths were initially ruled justifiable homicide and the police claimed the Panthers had initiated hostilities, but a number of investigations pointed to state-sponsored assassination and subsequent civil lawsuits led to settlements by law enforcement and Illinoisí Cook County. Thousands attended Hamptonís funeral and he was eulogized by African American leaders including Jesse Jackson and Ralph Abernathy. OíNeal remained haunted by his part in Hamptonís death until his mysterious suicide in 1990.
