On August 9, 2014, the world was introduced to Mike Brown who was shot and killed in the middle of the street following an altercation with a police officer.

That story is now going to make its way onto the big screen.

According to The Root, Warner Bros. has purchased the rights to a book written by Brown’s mother Lezley McSpadden along with  novelist Lyah Beth LeFlor titled Tell the Truth & Shame the Devil: The Life, Legacy, and Love of My Son Michael Brown.  

The report states that they are looking to hire a writer of color to make the book into a screenplay, which may be created in the same way as Crash in which they will tell the different sides of the story.

How do you feel about it?
