Staff Reporter | On 03, Dec 2020
Jada Pinkett Smith will star in Netflix’s upcoming film Redd Zone.
Based on a true story, Redd Zone follows Tia Magee (Pinkett Smith), a single mother who steps forward to help her sons and their high school football teammates, The Bros, heal after the murder of their best friend, Dominic Redd; the film dedicated to his memory and the powerful impact he had on his community. One by one, The Bros start moving into her house, and soon 17 Bros are living under her roof. Eventually, all The Bros go to college, and 4 make it to the NFL.
Pinkett Smith, Miguel Melendez, and Jon Mone, Westbrook Studios Co-President and Head of Motion Pictures, will produce the film with Howard Burkons and former NFL linebacker and MLB outfielder Brandon Magee, serving as executive producers for the project.
Pinkett Smith is currently in production on The Matrix 4 and executive producing the upcoming biopic King Richard. Pinkett Smith co-hosts Facebook Watch’s most popular series, Red Table Talk, alongside her mother and her daughter.
She has become a champion of minority filmmakers, serving as executive producer for Hala, directed by Minhal Baig, which Apple TV + picked up as their first deal in Sundance 2019.
