American filmmaker Adam McKay has chosen Tyler Perry to play Colin Powell in a new movie about the former U. S. Vice President Dick Cheney for Annapurna.

Colin Powell is the four-star general in the United States military who was Secretary of State during the George W. Bush administration. He urged that the U. S. invade Iraq in 2003 on intel that Saddam Hussein was making weapons.

In an interview with Deadline McKay explains, “a lot of crazy stuff happened during those eight years and this is a vital puzzle piece in what got us to this moment with Donald Trump, with the world, as it is now, and Dick Cheney is at the center of it.”

In the unnamed movie, Perry will co-star with actor Christian Bale who will play Dick Cheney. Amy Adams will play his wife Lynne, Sam Rockwell will play George W. Bush and Steve Carell as the Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld.

The film is currently in production.

  1. Colin Powell should run against Chump in 2020.
    As an Independent candidate would be nice.
    Since he has nothing in common with the THUGLICAN’S as they are now.

    Mr. Powell has the experience, in particular-how to deal with foreign affairs
    and would bring some diplomacy and tact back into the picture.
    One of the many things that Chump lacks!!!!!!!!!!
