It’s Finn’s year! Wittrock has joined the cast of ‘Last Black Man in San Francisco.’ a drama that reteams Brad Pitt’s Plan B banner with A24. The two previously collaborated on the Oscar-winning Moonlight.
Joe Talbot is directing the feature that is inspired by events in Fails’ life and is based on a short the two made in 2017.
In a timely tale involving race and gentrification, Last Black Man tells of the story of a man (Fails) and his oddball best friend (Majors) who are living in San Francisco’s last and fast-dwindling Black neighborhood. They hatch a plan to buy back the Victorian home that belonged to the man’s grandfather, searching for belonging even as they feel the city is leaving them behind.
Danny Glover, Tichina Arnold, Rob Morgan, Mike Epps, Finn Wittrock and Thora Birch round out the cast.
