HBO Films has released the first full-length trailer for Native Son, the adaptation of Richard Wright’s classic, controversial novel.
The film debuted at Sundance and A24, who initially planned to release it theatrically, sold it to HBO. It’ll debut on the premium cabler on April 6.
The adaptation is written by Pulitzer Prize winner Suzan-Lori Parks and conceptual artist and photographer Rashid Johnson helmed the film in his feature directorial debut.
Ashton Sanders leads the film as Bigger Thomas, alongside Margaret Qualley, Nick Robinson, KiKi Layne, Sanaa Lathan, Bill Camp and more.
