Sci-fi adventure They Cloned Tyrone lands on Netflix in July, and here’s the trailer for the John Boyega-headlined film.
John Boyega has been a regular in science fiction ever since bursting onto the scene in 2011 with his star making turn in Attack The Block, thr sequel to which is currently in development. He has since starred in several Star Wars films.
They Cloned Tyrone is described as a “totally radical throwback sci-fi adventure”. The synopsis reads as follows:
A pulpy, sci-fi mystery caper in which an unlikely trio investigates a series of eerie events, alerting them to a nefarious conspiracy lurking directly beneath their hood. Fontaine, a neighborhood drug dealer, is shot dead by rival Isaac and then is very shocked to wake up in his bed the next morning unharmed. He and Slick Charles and Yo-Yo begin looking into the incident, and their search eventually leads them to a vast underground complex where a government – backed lab is performing experiments on the local Black population. Realizing that he is an artificial clone controlled by Nixon, Fontaine initially feels despair, but decides he needs to stand up to these white institutional overlords for the sake of his neighborhood.
Boyega stars alongside Teyonah Parris, and Jamie Foxx as the central trio, with J. Alphonse Nicholson, David Alan Grier, Joshua Mikel, and Tamberla Perry completing the cast.
Juel Taylor directed the film from a script he co-wrote with Tony Rettenmaier.
They Cloned Tyrone lands on Netflix on the 21st July.
