Hinds, who is getting positive reviews for her turn as Harriet Tubman on WGN America’s Underground, will join Stranger Things break-out star Millie Bobby Brown, Vera Farmiga, Kyle Chandler, Ken Watanabe and O’Shea Jackson Jr.
Plot details are unknown at this time for the film, which Dougherty co-wrote with Zach Shields. WB is releasing it in theaters March 22, 2019.
Hinds is fresh off universal praising for her solo-performance as Harriet Tubman in a recent Underground episode. She’s had supporting roles in a number of television series, including The Shield, True Blood, Detroit 1-8-7 and Under the Dome. Currently, she can be seen in Fox’s police brutality social series Shots Fired and she recently co-starred opposite Bryan Cranston and Anthony Mackie in the HBO biopic All The Way. She’s repped by Greene & Associates Talent Agency and attorney Jeff Bernstein.
Congrats to Aisha Hinds! Her star is shining extra bright and we can’t wait to revel in her glow!
