Academy Award-winning director Jordan Peele was enlisted to be the producer on BlacKkKlansman, a forthcoming Spike Lee joint. It is a ’70s-set feature about a Black detective infiltrating the Ku Klux Klan starring John David Washington, Adam Driver and Topher Grace.

The script was written by Lee, Kevin Willmott, Charlie Wachtel and David Rabinowitz, and it is based on Ron Stallworth’s 2014 novel Black Klansman. Lee wanted to link the period piece to modern times by linking David Duke to President Donald Trump.

The film is the director’s first entry into the Cannes Film Festival competition lineup since Jungle Fever (1991). It is reported to have received a 10-minute standing ovation at Cannes.

BlacKkKlansman is slated to be released on Aug. 10.
