Here’s a biopic we could get behind: Halle Berry is really, really interested in playing the civil rights activist Angela Davis onscreen. Halle’s been saying in interviews for years that she wants to portray the professor and writer (and a professor a UC Santa Cruz, where Amelia went to school) on film. “Her story is so fascinating. I would love to bring it to the screen,” Halle Berry told InStyle recently. “I would pick her brain to have a better understanding of her affiliation with the Black Panthers and that period from the 1960s.” Hollywood has made more than a few films about the ’60s panic over communism (Davis actually lost her job over her ties to the Communist Party), so why not the Black Panthers, too? Make it happen, Hollywood! [IndieWire]
