A biopic about Bob Marley is set to begin production with actor Kingsley Ben-Adir landing the role to portray the music legend.
According to reports, Ben-Adir won the role after a long audition process. The film will be directed by Reinaldo Marcus Green, the director of King Richard, and produced by Marley’s children and wife, Ziggy, Cedella, and Rita Marley.
For Ben-Adir, he is no stranger to portraying iconic figures in film. He played Malcolm X in “One Night In Miami” and President Barack Obama in Showtime’s “The Comey Rule.”
During his career, Marley has sold 25 million copies around the world. His album Legend would become the best-selling reggae album of all time.
