Director Ava DuVernay and "Selma"'s David Oyelowo aren't letting their awards snubs slow them down. The two are already working on their next project.
That project: a story of love and murder set against the backdrop of Hurricane Katrina. DuVernay will write and direct, and Oyelowo is in talks to star and produce. (Video via BlackTree TV)
The pair's last film, following Martin Luther King, Jr.'s fight for voting rights, proved adept at giving historical moments a strong, contemporary relevance. And that will be helpful for a major motion picture about Katrina.
