The film is directed by Shaka King and Ryan Coogler (the director of superhero blockbuster “Black Panther”) co-produced the movie with Charles D. King. While talking to virtual panel in August, Coogler said that he was mesmerized when King first introduced this idea to him.

“Chairman Fred Hampton is somebody whose life work, and the story of his assassination, has been relevant since the day (it) happened and only continues to become more relevant with context,” Coogler said. “But I also think that Shaka’s point of view, and how he wanted to tell the story, was also something that’s extremely relevant, as well,” he added.

When is it going to release?

Judas and the Black Messiah is scheduled to release in theatres and on HBO Max this week on 12th February with the budget of $26 million. It was initially scheduled for a release in August last year, but got postponed due to the pandemic. With its 12th February release, the movie is now eligible for this year’s Oscar nominations.


The movie’s original song titled “Fight for You” is performed by H.E.R, who also co-wrote the song with Tiara Thomas and D’Mile. The score of the movie was composed by Craig Harris and Mark Isham.
