my guess is that maybe they are wanting to capitalize black history month and use that for pushing the Black Panther movie?

Wait, if the movie NOW is looking for a director...I would LOVE for it to be Mr. Hudlin himself!

Oh WOW Ryan Coogler is one of those up and coming directors that you expect great things from. You seen the trailer for Creed?? That looks amazingly well done. I hope they get this guy on their team before he gets snatched up by another project. Looks like he would do the Black Panther well

Anthony Mackie Doesn't Care If 'Black Panther' Director Is Black: "They Didn’t Get a Horse to Direct 'Seabiscuit'"
OCTOBER 22, 2015 1:17pm PT by Graeme McMillan



Quote
Unlike many fans, Anthony Mackie — AKA the Falcon in Marvel's Captain America and Avengers movies — isn't concerned whether or not the studio hires an African American director to take charge of its first black superhero movie, 2018's Black Panther.

"I don’t think it’s important at all," the actor told The Daily Beast during a promotional appearance for his current project, Our Brand is Crisis. "As a director your job is to tell a story," he continued. "You know, they didn’t get a horse to direct Seabiscuit!"

Mackie went on to say that he doesn't believe that the race of a director "has to do with their ability to tell a story," adding, "I think it’s all about the director’s ability to be able to relate to that story and do it justice. I think men can direct women, and two of my greatest work experiences were with female directors. So I think it all depends."

At one point, Selma director Ava DuVernay was in the mix to take on Black Panther, which features Chadwick Boseman in the title role, before dropping out because she didn't "see eye to eye" with Marvel over the direction of the project. The studio is in negotiations with Joe Robert Cole to write the movie. Relatedly, Marvel's publishing arm announced last month that MacArthur "Genius" grant winner Ta-Nehisi Coates will write its new Black Panther comic book, launching in January.

The comments, which have already drawn criticism on social media, put the actor into hot water for the second time this week. An interview with BET on Monday, in which he appeared to endorse Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump, required a hasty takeback on Twitter after fan complaints.

Study puts numbers to the lack of minority representation in film
by Vadim Rizov

A study released by USC’s Annenberg School For Communication & Journalism provides some stats to put these high-profile titles in perspective. Examining 500 top-grossing films released in the U.S. from 2007 to 2012, the study considers some 20,000 characters and finds diversity is sorely lacking. “Across 100 top-grossing films of 2012, only 10.8 percent of speaking characters are Black, 4.2 percent are Hispanic, 5 percent are Asian, and 3.6 percent are from other (or mixed race) ethnicities,” the paper notes at the outset. “Just over three-quarters of all speaking characters are White (76.3 percent). These trends are relatively stable, as little deviation is observed across the five-year sample.”

Those representation rates don’t correlate with who’s buying tickets. “As a point of comparison, a full 44 percent of movie tickets sold domestically were purchased in 2012 by non-Caucasians,” the study notes. “26 percent of tickets were sold to Hispanics, 11 percent to African Americans and 7 percent to people from other ethnicities. Using these MPAA percentages, Hispanics are the most underrepresented group on screen.”

Among the other conclusions reached: “Hispanic females are more likely to be depicted in sexy attire and partially naked than Black or White females. Asian females are far less likely to be sexualized.” While women got assigned the same kind of domestic status regardless of their race or ethnicity, “Hispanic males are more likely to be depicted as fathers and relational partners than males in all other racial/ethnic groups. Black males, on the other hand, are the least likely to be depicted in these roles.”

Behind the camera, diversity is even more lacking, with “a ratio of over 16 non-Black directors working to every 1 Black director,” and only two black women directors among the 500 films considered. That doesn’t surprise Ava DuVernay, the first black female director to win best director at Sundance last year for her feature Middle Of Nowhere. “I pretty much know us all personally,” she told The Los Angeles Times.

No, I just found this pic on the "Black Panther Appreciation Thread" over on CBR.

While I prefer Keith David over Ernie Hudson, my concern is that T'Chaka not be seen as over the hill and out of shape.



Keith David may be able to pull this off. Plus he has the voice and the experience of having been the Black Panther.
