Based on true events. The incredible and moving real life story set in 1980’s Detroit at the height of the crack epidemic and war on drugs, White Boy Rick is the journey of a white inner city teenager who secretly becomes an informant for the local cops and FBI while at the same time establishing himself as a major drug dealer before ultimately being betrayed by his handlers and sentenced to life in prison.
Yann Demange made his directorial feature debut in 2014 with the acclaimed indie ’71 and was hailed by IndieWire as a “critical darling,” winning Best Director at the British Independent Film Awards and nominated for a BAFTA. WHITE BOY RICK is the much-anticipated follow-up to Demange’s cinematic breakout.
Studio 8 and producers are compiling
one heck of an ensemble cast
for their feature drama White Boy Rick.
