John Boyega & Will Poulter Defend Being Cast in 'Detroit'!

John Boyega and Will Poulter are defending the decision to cast British stars in their new film Detroit!

In case you didn’t know: Detroit is “based on the true story of one of the most terrifying secrets in American history,” it takes a look at the civil unrest that rocked Detroit in the summer of 1967, when three young African American men were murdered at the Algiers Motel.

“When I first read the script it said ‘untitled Kathryn Bigelow project’ and that was enough for me,” John expressed at the London premiere. “You have to trust Kathryn to pick the right cast — none of us were worried about who was from where.”

“I don’t think it is an issue. I just felt very lucky and honoured to have the responsibility of exposing an individual like that and getting the chance to play him unapologetically,” Will added. “In playing Krauss I had the opportunity to expose a real-life character who didn’t just exist in 1967 but unfortunately still operates today. Kathryn and I were keen to expose that fact as unapologetically as possible to draw attention to the greater issue that these individuals don’t have an example made of them enough.”
