Daniel Kaluuya will play Fred Hampton, an Illinois-born honors student who was active in the NAACP, brokered a non-aggression pact between two of Chicago's gangs, coined the phrase “rainbow coalition,” and rose to prominence in the Black Panther Party on both the state and national level. Hampton was assassinated by the FBI and the Chicago Police Department at age 21 during a raid on his apartment.

Lakeith Stanfield will play William O'Neal, a car thief who had his charges dropped by becoming an FBI informant who worked his way into the Black Panthers, eventually becoming Hampton's bodyguard and turning over a detailed layout of Hampton's apartment to the authorities, which ultimately contributed to Hampton's assassination. This film is said to “look at the rise and death of Hampton through O'Neal's perspective.”
