They nab Steven Caple Jr. as writer.

Will Smith and Jay Z continue to move our culture forward with their monumental business moves.

Last year, the hip-hop icons announced that they were producing a not-yet-titled film about the gruesome murder of Emmett Till in 1955. Well, the project, which is set to run as a six-part miniseries on HBO, is officially in active production now and has a writer for the script.

Writer and director Steven Caple Jr, who wrote The Land, has been tapped to pen the story of Till. Caple will write a script based on the book, Emmett Till: The Murder That Shocked The World And Propelled The Civil Rights Movement by Devery Anderson. Source
