Chaz Ebert Producing Biopic Of Emmett Till

Posted On: May 20, 2015

Chaz Ebert is the wife of the late movie critic Roger Ebert, who is following in her husband footsteps but paving her own path as a movie producer, will be directing and producing a biopic film of Emmett Till.

The movie will be adapted from the book "Death of Innocence: The Story of the Hate Crime That Changed America" which was co-written by Emmett's mother and journalist Christopher Benson. Chaz will join forces with Shatterglass Films to bring the film to the big screen. Till's legacy continues to live although he was murdered due to racism and ignorance, when he whistled at a White woman in Mississippi while he was visiting relatives. Emmett was only 14 years old and his death made headlines across the nation, sparking outrage and set the motion for the civil rights movement.

Emmett Till's story has been documented in countless books as autobiographies, as well as school books. There's been several documentaries of Till's story which were broadcast and televised, in 2003 PBS American Experience film "The Murder Of Emmett Till” and Keith Beauchamp’s 2003 “The Untold Story of Emmett Louis Till."

The location for the production of Till's biopic film will be in Chicago, the Mississippi Delta and Central Illinois.

"The full Emmett Till story needs to be told now and told well as a narrative for our times, given all that is happening on American streets today, and Shatterglass Films are the people to tell it," Ebert expressed in a press conference.
