Jeremy Pope is staying booked and busy, and he is absolutely shining as a leading man!
The latest title from A24 (the company that brought queer favorites like Moonlight, Everything Everywhere All At Once, and Bodies Bodies Bodies), The Inspection is an upcoming drama film starring Pope and written/directed by out filmmaker Elegance Bratton, telling the autobiographical story of a Black gay man who is disowned by his family, kicked out of his home, and is forced to enlist in the Marine Corps after having little to no options with what to do in his life.
The film is one of Pope's first film roles after the conclusion of the Emmy-winning, critically-acclaimed, and beloved FX series Pose in 2021, and also stars Looking alum Raul Castillo and screen icon/passionate LGBTQ+ ally Gabrielle Union.
"In Elegance Bratton's deeply moving film inspired by his own story, a young, gay Black man, rejected by his mother and with few options for his future, decides to join the Marines, doing whatever it takes to succeed in a system that would cast him aside," the film's official description reads. "But even as he battles deep-seated prejudice and the grueling routines of basic training, he finds unexpected camaraderie, strength, and support in this new community, giving him a hard-earned sense of belonging that will shape his identity and forever change his life."
The Inspection is slated to hit theaters on November 18. Watch the official trailer for the film below.
