Open Road Films has just debuted a new official poster for Marshall starring Chadwick Boseman (Captain America: Civil War, 2018’s Black Panther). Directed by Reginald Hudlin from a script by Jake Koskoff and Michael Koskoff, the dramatic film based on true events also stars Josh Gad, Sterling K. Brown, Kate Hudson, Dan Stevens, and James Cromwell. Marshall is set to open in theaters on October 12, 2017.
The Plot: Long before he sat on the United States Supreme Court or claimed victory in Brown v. Board of Education, the landmark case that desegregated schools, Thurgood Marshall (Boseman) was a young rabble-rousing attorney for the NAACP. The new motion picture, Marshall, is the true story of his greatest challenge in those early days – a fight he fought alongside attorney Sam Friedman (Gad), a young lawyer with no experience in criminal law: the case of black chauffeur Joseph Spell (Brown), accused by his white employer, Eleanor Strubing (Hudson), of sexual assault and attempted murder.
