      Mos Def as former Panther

      Mos Def is in final negotiations to star in Stringbean and Marcus, an independent film that focuses on the relationship between two former Black Panther members who fall out of love.

      According to The Hollywood Reporter, Sophie Okonedo, who was nominated for an Oscar for her role in Hotel Rwanda, is also in final talks to star in the drama.

      The movie is set in 1978 and is told through the eyes of a young girl.

      "It's not so much about the idea of race," director Tanya Hamilton told The Hollywood Reporter. "I just wanted to show this world of ordinary people living under extraordinary circumstances."

      Although neither star is under contractual obligation as of press time, producer Sean Costello said both actors were committed to the project.

      "Mos is one of my favorite actors; he's fantastic," said Costello. "Sophie has to play this character who's both closed off and being open to helping people yet not being an angry woman. That's what she did in Hotel Rwanda as this maternal, yet emotionally conflicted woman."

      Stringbean and Marcus is scheduled to start shooting this July in Philadelphia.
      "We must continue to move forward and do everything we can to outlaw legal lynching in America. We must continue to stand together in unity and to demand a moratorium on all executions. You must stay strong. You must continue to hold your heads up, and to be there. We will prevail. Keep marching Black people. They are killing me tonight. They are murdering me tonight." -- Excerpts of Last Words of Bro. Shaka Sankofa, an innocent man executed by the state of Texas, 6/22/00. www.myspace.com/nattyreb7

      IMDb has it listed as a 2009 release.
      "Oh Africa! When shall be the term of thy long degradation? Behold here, even now, I pledge thee, O my Mother, that I shall devote my years to thee, shall work for thy redemption, shall love thee and be proud of thee and glory in thy power now lying dormant and shall strive to bring it to the light. Take my youth, my labors, my love, my all and do thou when I shall have died for thee, take me to thy bosom, an untamed, untamable African." -Hubert Harrison
