“We are thrilled that the Academy recognized BlacKkKlansman with 6 nominations – including Spike Lee’s first-ever for Best Picture and Best Director in his 30+ year career,” said Focus president Lisa Bunnell.  “Spike’s message that love must conquer hate feels like perfect time to have this film back in theaters.”   

Along with Spike Lee, the film’s screenplay is written by Charlie Wachtel, David Rabinowitz, Spike Lee and Kevin Willmott and produced by Sean McKittrick, Raymond Mansfield, Shaun Redick, Jason Blum, Jordan Peele and Spike Lee.

BlacKkKlansman is the incredible true story of Ron Stallworth (John David Washington), an American hero and the first African-American detective to serve in the Colorado Springs Police Department in the 1970s. Determined to make a name for himself, Stallworth bravely sets out on a dangerous mission: infiltrate and expose the Ku Klux Klan. The young detective soon recruits a more seasoned colleague, Flip Zimmerman (Adam Driver), into the undercover investigation of a lifetime. Together, they team up to take down the extremist hate group as the organization aims to sanitize its violent rhetoric to appeal to the mainstream.
