Although it seems like the project was only announced a few months ago, Spike Lee’s Black Klansman, styled as BlacKkKlansman, has release date: August 10, 2018.

The film, stars John David Washington, Laura Harrier, Corey Hawkins, Adam Driver and Topher Grace.

Here’s an new, official description for the film: From visionary director Spike Lee comes the provocative story based on Ron Stallworth’s real life as Colorado Springs’s first African-American police officer who went undercover to infiltrate the Ku Klux Klan.  Unbelievably, Detective Stallworth (John David Washington) and his partner Flip Zimmerman (Adam Driver) penetrate the KKK at its highest levels to thwart its attempt to take over the city.  Produced by the team behind the Academy-Award® winning Get Out, Spike Lee uses his trademark take-no-prisoner style and humor to tell this story often missing from the history books.

BlacKkKlansman produced by Sean McKittrick and Raymond Mansfield for QC Entertainment, Jason Blum for Blumhouse, Jordan Peele for Monkeypaw, Spike Lee, and Shaun Redick.  QC’s Edward H. Hamm Jr. will serve as Executive Producer. 

The film will be released just two days before the one-year anniversary of the incident Charlottesville.
