Jennifer Ehle (“Zero Dark Thirty”), Andre Holland (“42″) and comedian/actor Bill Burr (“The Heat”) have joined the new Kevin Costner drama “Black and White”, according to Deadline.
The Mike Binder (“Upside of Anger”) fame stars Costner as “as a grieving widower fighting for custody of his bi-racial granddaughter with the girl’s paternal grandmother (Octavia Spencer) and his drug addict son-in-law (Holland), who he blames for his own daughter’s death. Racial tension and bitterness erupt as they wage battle over the child.”
Mpho Koaho and newcomer Jillian Estell have also joined the cast.
Binder wrote the script for the film; his first since 2007’s “Reign Over Me”.
Filming begins Monday in New Orleans.
