‘American History X’ Director Tony Kaye Lines Up ‘African History Y’ with Djimon Hounsou
American History X” filmmaker Tony Kaye hasn’t directed a feature film since 2011’s “Detachment” starring Adrien Brody, but he’s back with “African History Y” and Djimon Hounsou will star.

In a statement provided to Deadline, Kaye said: “Djimon and I met just after I did ‘American History X.’ It was a cathartic meeting, and I knew immediately that he was an actor that I had to work with. The material had to be right, and thank God, now we have a project to work together on. The color cameras inside my head are ready to go to work in Africa.”
