Seth Gordon to helm racial injustice drama 'Tulia'

Press Trust of India  |  Los Angeles 

After "Baywatch", director Seth Gordon is set to helm a story about a notorious racial injustice case.

Titled "Tulia", the film is based on the infamous 1999 case that saw dozens of men, most of them African-American, arrested for a drug scandal based on the word of an unreliable cop, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Mubina Rattonsey's LA-based production shingle, Zero Gravity Motion Pictures, acquired the film rights from author Nate Blakeslee.

"I'm excited to bring this important and poignant story to a wider audience, to call attention to what happened in Tulia," said Gordon.

The director's other credits include comedies "Identity Thief" and "Horrible Bosses".
