Trayvon Martin‘s mother and father, as well as the family’s lawyer, are working on a new film, according to Radar Online. This summer, the trio began to secretly film scenes this summer in Buffalo, for a new movie called Marshall, directed by Reginald Hudlin. The site reports:

The film takes place in 1940, when a young NAACP lawyer named Thurgood Marshall (Chadwick Boseman) travels to Connecticut to defend a black chauffeur (Sterling K. Brown) wrongly accused of raping a beautiful socialite (Kate Hudson). Josh Gad, of The Book of Mormon fame, plays the lead lawyer on the case. According to insiders, the Martins play a fictitious family that Hudlin cooked up as a PR hook when the film comes out. “People who don’t know who Thurgood Marshall was will hear their names promoting the film,” a source told Radar exclusively. “It’s a good idea and a way to make it current.”
