It looks like 2024 will be carrying the same fashion in January with Paramount’s new biopic, Bob Marley: One Love. Leading this biopic is Kingsley Ben-Adir, who plays Gravik in Disney+’s Secret Invasion and will also be hitting the big screen in Barbie as Ken on July 21. Ben-Adir also starred in the 2020 film One Night in Miami… as human rights activist Malcom X. Now, in 2024, he will be playing one of the greatest pioneers of Reggae, Bob Marley.
This film is being directed by Reinaldo Marcus Green, a director who is not new to biopics as he directed the Oscar-nominated King Richard. Ben-Adir isn’t the only big name from Marvel who appears in this film: Lashana Lynch (The Marvels) will be starring alongside Ben-Adir as Bob Marley’s wife, Rita Marley.
The official synopsis for Bob Marley: One Love reads ‘Bob Marley: One Love celebrates the life and music of an icon who inspired generations through his message of love and unity. On the big screen for the first time, discover Bob’s powerful story of overcoming adversity and the journey behind his revolutionary music’.
