After working with Kathryn Bigelow on Best Picture winner The Hurt Locker, Anthony Mackie is set to reteam with the director for her untitled movie about the 1967 Detroit riots, Mashablehas confirmed.

Fresh off Star Wars: The Force Awakens, John Boyega will lead the ensemble, which also includes Jack Reynor (Sing Street), Will Poulter (The Revenant), Ben O’Toole (Hacksaw Ridge) and Hannah Murray (Game of Thrones).
