Academy Award nominated director #AvaDuVernay has officially signed on to keep the marathon alive throughout streaming services, as she is set to direct an official Nipsey Hussle documentary!
According to Deadline , DuVernay’s production company ARRAY banner is set to team up with Nipsey’s company of MARATHON FILMS to produce the project under the streaming service of Netflix.
The announcement was made Monday afternoon as Netflix duked it out within a major bidding war against both Apple and Amazon. It has been indicated that Netflix secured their win with the bid of $10 million dollars, reports People Magazine.
Though both streaming platforms were looking to snag production of the documentary; it has been stated that Nipsey’s estate reached out to DuVernay directly.
There have been no further details forwarded at this time of production.
THE MARATHON CONTINUES! 💙🏁
