Written by Niceole Levy and Nolfi, the film, which also features Anthony Mackie, Nicholas Hoult and Nia Long, The Banker is based on the true story of two AfricanAmerican entrepreneurs, Bernard Garrett (Mackie) and Joe Morris (Jackson), who during the 1950s tried to circumvent the racial limitations of the era and take on the establishment by recruiting a working class white man, Matt Steiner (Hoult) and training him to pose as the head of their business empire while the two posed as a janitor and a chauffeur. The film is being shot in Atlanta.
