…Pictures' "Clover-verse".

"… we have word that Overlord will be adding Jovan Adepo (Fences) and Wyatt Russell (22 Jump Street) as the leads of the mysterious film. Directed by Julius Avery (Son of a Gun) and scripted by Billy Ray (Captain Phillips) and Mark L. Smith (The Revenant), Overlord will follow a group of American paratroopers dropped behind enemy lines on the eve of D-Day.

I hope you are right, Mark, and it has nothing to do with Normandy landings. Otherwise I don't know how they will justify including an Afro-American actor as part of the cast, acting the part of a paratrooper. I know there was an all-black soldiers paratrooper battalion, the 555th, but it never served overseas; and in June 1944 US Army was still segregated. We'll see how they justify it.
