White Boy Rick: Official Trailer Released Online


Sony Pictures has released the official trailer for crime thriller White Boy Rick, based on the true story about Richard Wershe Jr.

 

The official synopsis for the film is as follows:

Set in 1980s Detroit at the height of the crack epidemic and the War on Drugs, White Boy Rick is based on the moving true story of a blue-collar father and his teenage son, Rick Wershe Jr., who became an undercover police informant and later a drug dealer, before he was abandoned by his handlers and sentenced to life in prison.

 

The rags to riches beats are met here in this trailer for White Boy Rick, but from the story and the way this trailer is put together, I’m definitely interesting in seeing how this true story is brought to life on the big screen. The script is written by Andy Weiss, Logan and Noah Miller, with Yann Demange directing.
