Uzo Aduba to star in Roots adaptation

 

American actress Uzo Aduba is to star in a new film alongside fellow actress Maggie Smith.

The drama, called Showing Roots, is based in a small southern town in 1977 in which the duo are inspired by the premiere of miniseries Roots to integrate their community.

All does not go to plan though as underlying racial tensions erupt during the attempt.

Aduba, best known as Suzanne “Crazy Eyes” Warren on Netflix original series Orange is the New Black, and Smith, who appears in Taken 3 which is released this week, are due to begin filming this month in Louisiana.
