Morgan Freeman to Play Colin Powell in Secretary of State Biopic

Morgan Freeman to play former Secretary of State Colin Powell in a new biopic

The life of retired four-star general and former U.S. Secretary of State Colin Powell is receiving the biopic treatment, and one of the best actors in the biz has just signed up to play the part. The project will focus on Powell's tenure as the 65th United States Secretary of State, serving under President George W Bush from 2001 to 2005.

Freeman is arguably the flawless choice as an actor in playing the role of Colin Powell.

The Hollywood Reporter has revealed that none other than acclaimed actor Morgan Freeman will take on the role of Colin Powell. A period in history, where much like the present, we would all really like to know exactly what went through the minds of the most powerful men in the world. Powell initially opposed the US invasion of Iraq that followed those attacks, calling for further intelligence and research into whether the Iraqi dictator could be harboring weapons of mass destruction.

The Rockets were down 114-107 after a three-pointer from Warriors guard Stephen Curry with 5min 12sec left in the fourth quarter. He is expected to make his season debut during the three-game trip that tips off Friday night at New Orleans.

Reginald Hudlin, who is coming off the Thurgood Marshall biopic Marshall, will direct the drama, which will be produced by Amritraj and Lori McCreary, Freeman's partner at Revelations Entertainment. However, he eventually relented into pushing the American war agenda, making a case for the war to the United Nations Security Council, using evidence that would later be discredited or proven false.

The Hudlin and Freeman film is based on a well-rated script that placed highly on 2011's Black List, an annual ranking of most-liked unproduced screenplays as voted for by Hollywood producers and insiders; also on the list that year were Django Unchained, The Accountant, and The Imitation Game.

Freeman, repped by CAA, last appeared on the big screen in the crime caper comedy Going in Style and will appear in Disney's upcoming fantasy The Nutcracker and the Four Realms.
