Anthony Mackie Joins ‘The Hate You Give’ Cast
Anthony Mackie, along with Kian Lawley, have been cast in the YA novel adaptation The Hate U Give.
Adapted from Angela Thomas’ bestseller, the film follows Starr Carter (Amandla Stenberg), a young woman already caught between two worlds. There’s the poor, mostly black neighbourhood where she lives and the rich, largely white prep school she attends. But when Starr witnesses the death of her best friend Khalil at the hands of a police officer, it throws her world into further chaos, especially when she’s called upon to speak up about what happened.
George Tillman Jr. is directing. The cast also features Regina Hall, Russell Hornsby, Issa Rae, Sabrina Carpenter, Algee Smith, Lamar Johnson and Common.
