EXCLUSIVE: Michael B. Jordan Tells the Story of Oscar Grant in “Fruitvale Station”

Coogler wanted his characters to look ‘real’ and suggested to Jordan to put on a little weight to match his character. He wanted his characters to hold an everyday quality about their appearance, something in which the viewers can relate with and identify, a common practice in many independent films before they become glamorized for mass audiences.

The rest is now Sundance Film Festival history.

Tragically, Oscar Grant’s death and the trial surrounding the incident is not an isolated occurrence in America among the black community. Fortunately, Ryan Coogler’s work was recognized by the Weinstein Company, the major film studio that will present “Fruitvale Station” to AMC theaters on July 26, 2013.
