Daniel Craig & Halle Berry to Star in L.A. Riots Movie

Daniel Craig and Halle Berry will fall in love in the upcoming movie Kings, which is set around the L.A. riots in 1992.

The movie will follow a character named Ollie (Craig), “a loner who lives in South Central — one of its only white residents — who befriends and falls in love with Berry’s character, a tough, protective mother who looks after a group of kids,” according to Deadline.

The two characters try and track down the kids from the worst of the violence when the riots break out in the city.

The L.A. Riots happened in 1992 during the Rodney King trial after the policemen who beat the man were acquitted. 55 people died in the riots, which spread across Los Angeles and lasted six days.

Kings will be directed by Deniz Gamze Erguven and will be his English-language debut.

    Lol at a LA riots movie with a white lead. A moment in history that was literally centered around black people…and Daniel Craig is the star.

    My thoughts exactly. Hollywood has found a way to whitewash the LA riots. Shameful.

    Jesse L. Martin from Law and Order should play Rodney. They look very much alike.

    Sadly, studio execs still think that a movie won’t make money unless it has a white lead.
