HU Exclusive: “Black and Blue” Cast Talks Making Of The Movie, Why They Would Never Be A Cop & More!

Is #BlackAndBlue just another cop movie? Absolutely not! The action-packed thriller directed by Deon Taylor, takes us into a super intense experience as we follow a BLACK FEMALE cop go through extreme lengths to expose crooked officers in her department to protect the community. Now, although the tone of the film is at times a bit tough to take in, the overall message of it is very inspirational.

Hollywood Unlocked got the chance to chop it up with Taylor and some of the cast including Tyrese Gibson who plays (Mouse), Naomie Harris (Alicia West), who for the first time in cinematic history is a Black female playing a police officer as a lead, Mike Colter (Darius), Frank Grillo (Terry Malone), and Nafessa Williams (Missy.) Taylor shared how important is was for him to drop a movie at this time, especially where it almost feels like art is imitating life. Tyrese added that he thought of a few people who have unfortunately died due to gun violence or at the hands of the police including Nipsey Hussle, Eric Garner, and Tamir Rice — which helped him tap into his role.

While speaking with the cast on their experience filming the movie, we also asked if they ever saw themselves being a cop if they weren’t a director or an actor. Most of the cast honestly answered no while Mike and Deon explained why they wouldn’t completely pass on the thought of it.
