Judas and the Black Messiah is a hot new movie starring Daniel Kaluuya and Lakeith Stanfield about Chicago Black Panther leader Fred Hampton and the FBI infiltrator who snitched on him. It’s a great story and a compelling film on HBO Max now. The story began with a treatment by the Lucas Bros who talk about the film from inception to screen. Great conversation for those who’ve seen the film—spoilers abound because we go deep into the story, the nuances, the making of it, and the ending. Should it have had a different ending? We discuss the alternate ending they considered, one I like even better. You can get half of this conversation for free. To hear the whole thing support us at Patreon.co/toureshow.
