Kelvin Harrison Jr. to Star in 'Chevalier de Saint-Georges'


Kelvin Harrison Jr. (Waves, Luce) has been cast as the lead in Chevalier de Saint-Georges, an upcoming period biopic about the artist known by the same name. The illegitimate son of a French plantation owner and an enslaved African woman, Chevalier de Saint-Georges became an acclaimed violinist, composer, and fencer. He rose to fame in French society, but after an love affair gone wrong and a falling out with Marie Antoinette and her court, his downfall was swift.

The film is set to be directed by Stephen Williams (Westworld), with a script by Emmy-nominated Stefani Robinson (Atlanta).
