Barry Jenkins penned the initial draft for the script, with rewrites from Sherman Payne. The pic centers on Mouse (Winston), a young boy who wants nothing more than to be a part of the Midnight Clique, a tough group of Baltimore bike riders who rule the summertime streets. As he navigates the challenges of coming of age in a complicated world, he learns the hard way that the choices you make early on can change your life forever.
Mill’s character is the leader of the Midnight Clique and a legend in the eyes of Mouse.
Overbrook’s Jada Pinkett Smith, Caleeb Pinkett, Marc Bienstock, and Clarence Hammond are producing the project.
