The Orville and Superman & Lois actor Chad L. Coleman is also well known for portraying the mild-mannered Tyreese on The Walking Dead. Fans can currently see Coleman in season 3 of the CW series Superman & Lois as Bruno Mannheim. Next, he will star in a creature feature film, The Angry Black Girl and Her Monster.
The film is a modern interpretation of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, written and directed by Bomani J. Story, in his debut. The Angry Black Girl and Her Monster premiered at SXSW and is more than just a horror story.
This movie follows a young black girl, Vicaria, who lost her mother and then beloved brother to gun violence. Instead of allowing his story to end there, she takes matters into her own hands, using her talent for scientific inventions. She believes that death is a sickness that can be cured and attempts to find that cure, but things don’t go quite as she planned.
Coleman plays a character named Donald, who appears to be the father of Vicaria, played by Laya Deleon Hayes (The Equalizer). They are joined by Denzel Whitaker (Black Panther), Reilly Brooke Stith, and Keith Holliday.
The Angry Black Girl and Her Monster release date
The movie was released in theaters and available on digital and on-demand on June 9, 2023. AMC has announced the film will debut on Shudder and ALLBLK on Friday, September 22, 2023.
The Angry Black Girl and Her Monster synopsis
"Vicaria is a brilliant teenager who believes death is a disease that can be cured. After the brutal and sudden murder of her brother, she embarks on a dangerous journey to bring him back to life. Inspired by Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, the dramatic thriller thematically challenges ideas of life and death following a family that, despite the terrors of systemic pressure, will survive and be reborn together again."
