Jay Will Of Tulsa King will star in the new film written and directed by Chiwetel Ejiofor, Ron Peace. Based on what was reported by Deadlines it should be a story that reflects on those who come from the street, reasoning on the value of the single life of the protagonist.
The Jay Will film will be based on Jeff Hobbs’ best-selling biography titled The Short and Tragic Life of Robert Peace: A Brilliant Young Man Who Left Newark for the Ivy League, at the center of which we find the story of Robert Peace, a Yale scholarship student who reaches the university after growing up in a crime-ridden area of Newark, New Jersey. On campus, he majors in molecular biophysics and biochemistry, working in a cancer and infectious disease research lab, while at the same time making money selling marijuana. While Peace graduated with honors in 2002, his life fell apart when he was killed in a drug-related shooting in 2011.
