Roger Ebert’s Widow Will Bring Emmett Till’s Story To The Big Screen
May 15, 2015 By Henry Mansell

It was recently announced during the 2015 Cannes Film Festival that a biopic on the life of Emmett Till, the black Chicago teenager whose death in 1955 kick-started the American Civil Rights Movement, is in the works, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Shatterglass Films and Chaz Ebert, the former wife of late Chicago Sun-Times film critic Roger Ebert, are set to adapt the award-winning book Death of Innocence: The Story of the Hate Crime That Changed America into the feature based on Till’s life
