A co-production between Jordan Peele‘s Monkeypaw Productions, QC Entertainment and Blumhouse, BLACKkKLANSMAN stars John David Washington, Adam Driver, Laura Harrier and Topher Grace.
The story covers these true events in 1978’s Colorado Springs, where an officer (Washington) pretends to be a white supremacist over the phone and send a white officer (Driver) in his place for in-person meetings. Here we’re introduced to the head of the local KKK Chapter (Grace), as we follow the officers as they sabotage the racist’s activities from within.
