Lee Daniels’ new film has officially been purchased by Paramount Pictures in an eight-figure deal. “The United States vs. Billie Holiday” is centered around the notorious 50’s Jazz singer Billie Holiday and her fight against racial injustice, anti-lynching, and the feds. The feds ordered Holiday to stop singing her anti-lunch song “Strange Fruit”. After she refused a sting operation ensued. 

“I hope The United States vs. Billie Holiday will add to this important conversation by shining a light on systemic racism and social injustice. I also feel that in this time of great reckoning, it is essential we celebrate the life and artistry of an unsung civil rights warrior Billie Holiday”, stated Daniels.
