Karen Kendrick Joins ‘Just Mercy’

Karan_Kendrick‘Karan Kendrick, who can soon be seen in Fox’s The Hate U Give, has landed a significant role in the Warner Bros film, Just Mercy, which will open January 17, 2020.

The pic stars Michael B. Jordan, Brie Larson, and Jamie Foxx. Destin Cretton is directing. The feature is based on Bryan Stevenson’s 2014 memoir on his first case about Walter McMillian (Foxx), a black man sentenced to death for a crime he didn’t commit. Despite his airtight alibi, McMillian was convicted and spent six years on death row before being exonerated. Kendrick will play Walter’s wife Minnie McMillan.

Filming is currently underway in Atlanta. Gil Netter and Asher Goldstein are producing, while Jordan, Stevenson, Mike Drake, Gabriel Hammond, Daniel Hammond, and Niija Kuykendall are serving as executive producers. Kendrick, whose other credits include Hidden Figures and The Hunger Game, is repped by Pallas Management Group and CESD.’
