David Oyelowo will star in and produce Another Day in the Death of America, a film based on the upcoming nonfiction book by Guardian journalist Gary Younge about gun violence in America. Younge investigated ten children, ages 9–19, all of whom were shot dead on the same day in 2013. The writer selected the date at random, and then searched for the victims’ families to tell their stories. The Allegiance Theater and Double E Pictures acquired film and life rights to the book, which addresses youth and gun violence in America.
