Exclusive: Jesse Plemons (The Post) and The Deuce actress Dominique Fishback are joining Warner Bros’ and MacRo’s anticipated Black Panthers pic Jesus Was My Homeboy, starring Daniel Kaluuya (Get Out) and Lakeith Stanfield (Atlanta).

The Ryan Coogler-produced film will follow the rise and untimely demise of iconic Black Panther Party member Fred Hampton (Kaluuya) as seen through the eyes of William O’Neal (Stanfield), the man who betrayed him to the FBI. It will explore how the FBI infiltrated the Black Panthers, the psychology of their informant and the notorious assassination of the young political leader who died aged only 21. Production is due to start in mid-late October. Fishback, the female lead, will play Hampton’s lover Deborah Johnson, the mother of activist Fred Hampton Jr. Plemons will star as Roy Mitchell, one of the primary FBI agents assigned to pursue Hampton and get intelligence from O’Neal.
