While anger continues to build over the Oscar love Ava DuVernay and David Oyelowo didn't receive for Selma, the duo is pushing ahead on their third collaboration anyway. Variety reports the two will team up on a film set during the 2005 Hurricane Katrina disaster.
DuVernay will produce, write, and direct while Oyelowo will produce and lead the film, which is described as a love story and murder mystery. The two first worked together on the indie drama, Middle of Nowhere, which won her Best Director at Sundance back in 2012.
No word on when filming could begin but this is pretty exciting news that DuVernay and Oyelowo are back in business together and tackling another event with deep societal impact. The two have been traveling the globe promoting Selma and clearly have developed a personal and creative bond that hopefully will lead to more projects in the future. Go here to check out my recent interview with them both for Selma.
