50-year-old American actor, Will Smith, is set to star in an upcoming Netflix film titled ‘The Council’
In the upcoming flick, Will Smith will play a New York City crime boss, Nicky Barnes and will be working with Peter Landesman,
the director of the 2015 movie ‘Concussion’ which Will played a lead role in.
“The Council” tells the never-before-told story of a crime syndicate consisting of seven African-American men who ruled Harlem in the 1970s and early 80s.
No ordinary crime syndicate – the men dreamed of a self-sufficient and self-policing African American city-state, funded by revolutionizing the drug game.
The movie centers on the Shakespearean court intrigue between The Council’s king, Nicky Barnes, dubbed “Mr. Untouchable” by the New York Times, and all the different members as one unlikely rising protégé emerges.”
