MARY J. BLIGE LANDS LEADING ROLE IN COP THRILLER
Mary J. Blige has secured her first leading role in the horror thriller Body Cam. The film follows a group of LAPD officers haunted by "a malevolent spirit that is tied to the murder of a black youth at the hands of two white cops." The police were caught on body cam footage later destroyed in a cover-up. Blige will play an officer who is consumed by visions and decides to find the truth.
The movie will be directed by Malik Vitthal, who helmed the 2014 crime drama Imperial Dreams which starred Star Wars John Boyega.
