Here’s a first official look at Actor Devon Terrell as young Barack Obama in Barry, the upcoming biography drama movie directed by Vikram Gandhi based on a script by Adam Mansbach:
“Twenty-year-old Barry (Devon Terrell) arrives in a New York City where turf wars pervade every milieu, from the basketball courts to the university campus where he is bullied by police on his first night. He starts dating a white woman from his political science class. He attends a party in a Harlem housing project. With his Kenyan father and Kansas-born mother, Barry should be able to slip between racially coded camps. Instead, he feels like he doesn’t belong anywhere.”
There’s already “Southisde With You“, about the first date of Barack and Michelle. And now, this film? People want to milk Barack Obama’s life, don’t they?
Beside Devon Terrell, the cast also includes Anya Taylor-Joy, Jason Mitchell, Ellar Coltrane, Ashley Judd, and Jenna Elfman.
The film has yet to get an official release date.
