Warner Bros. is working on a movie centered on the fatal shooting of Michael Brown, the unarmed 18-year-old who was shot and killed by Ferguson police in 2014.

According to Tracking-Board, the production company acquired the rights to Tell the Truth & Shame the Devil: The Life, Legacy, and Love of My Son Michael Brown, the 2016 memoir written by Lezley McSpadden, Mike Brown’s mother.

According to what insiders told Tracking-Board, Warner Bros. wants a movie “that is tonally and thematically similar to Crash.” If true, this creative decision will be a red flag to some, encouraging to others. (Despite winning the Best Picture Oscar in 2005, Crash is a movie that is deeply polarizing.)

Warner Bros. is looking for a writer to adapt the screenplay. Reportedly, they’re looking for a black writer to handle the script.
