In case you missed it, Matt Barnes announced that he’s bringing a Huey Newton biopic to the big screen.
Barnes posted a black power fist on his Instagram with the caption, “Just got the Huey Newton The Leader Of The Black Panthers-bio pic GreenLit! POWER TO THE PEOPLE will be the name of the film!”
Understandably, folks were hype by the news. As the co-founder of the Black Panther Party, Newton was an instrumental figure in Black history. He was a political activist, revolutionary and a doctor, earning his Ph.D. in social philosophy before his murder in 1989.
Amidst all the excitement Snoop Dogg hopped in Matt’s comment section declaring, “I’ll play Huey.” Unfortunately, it looks like Uncle Snoop should have read Barnes’ post a bit closer. In addition to announcing the biopic, the former NBA player also added actor Keith Powers to the caption asking him, “you ready bro?” Looks like Powers, who played Ronnie Devoe in The New Edition Story, will most likely take on the role sought by Snoop. But hey, maybe there’s something else he can do … like the soundtrack?!
No further details were released about the film, but are you excited nonetheless?
