'Black Panther' mix of 'The Godfather', James Bond: Producer

Press Trust of India  |  Los Angeles 

Nate Moore, the producer of "Black Panther" said the Marvel movie will be a vision that blends the formula of Hollywood's two biggest series, "The Godfather" and James Bond.

Talking to Entertainment Weekly, Moore teased that the Ryan Coogler-directed film was another blockbuster in the making, which stars actor Chadwick Boseman in the titular role/ T'Challa.

"(It is) a cross between James Bond and 'The Godfather'... A big, operatic family drama centred on a world of international espionage. So hopefully we're getting the best of both worlds," he said.

"(The film sees T'Challa attempting to) keep harmony between the tribes within his country, and that means managing expectations and doing things that are unpopular. At the same time, he is the protector of that nation," he said.

The Bond elements will enter the plot line partially in the form of Nakia, (played by Lupita Nyong'o) Wakanda's undercover operative and a former lover of T'Challa's.

Also starring Angela Bassett, the film is slated to release next year.
