#Roommates, it seems #SpikeLee and #JordanPeele are joining forces on a new movie titled ‘Black Klansman,’ a crime thriller based on a true story about a black detective who infiltrated the KKK.

Rolling Stone has confirmed John David Washington (son of Denzel Washington) is currently in talks to play the role of Ron Stallworth, a Colorado detective who managed to become head of his local KKK chapter by pretending to be a white supremacist via phone and written correspondence. Interestingly enough, even though Stallworth was black, when his presence was needed he recruited a white officer to take his place.

Through Stallworth’s detective work he was able to sabotage cross burnings and other KKK activities. This movie will be the first collaboration between Spike and Jordan.

#Roommates, are you here for this crime thriller?
