The parents of Trayvon Martin are working on a new movie. Sabrina Fulton and Tracy Martin have been secretly filming scenes in Buffalo, NY for a new movie called “Marshall” about the life of the first African-American Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall.
The film takes place in 1940, when a young NAACP lawyer named Thurgood Marshall (Chadwick Boseman) travels to Connecticut to defend a black chauffeur (Sterling K. Brown) wrongly accused of raping a beautiful socialite (Kate Hudson). Josh Gad, of The Book of Mormon fame, plays the lead lawyer on the case. According to insiders, the Martins play a fictitious family that Hudlin cooked up as a PR hook when the film comes out. “People who don’t know who Thurgood Marshall was will hear their names promoting the film,” a source told Radar exclusively. “It’s a good idea and a way to make it current.”
