Flint: Tip ‘T.I’ Harris And John Ortiz To Star In Flint, Michigan Water Crisis Film

Deadline is exclusively reporting that Tip ‘T.I’ Harris and John Ortiz are set to topline Malcolm M. Mays’ drama Flint, a film set against the backdrop of the Flint, Michigan water crisis.


The drama is about a spiritually reformed ex-convict who finds himself embroiled in a murder mystery, set upon by his ex-lover and a young mentee that unravels the very fabric of the water crisis afflicting the community he grew up in.


The project hails from the Will Smith and James Lassiter founded production company Overbrook Entertainment, with Clarence Hammond and Dougie Cash serving as producers on the project on behalf of Overbrook alongside Tommy Oliver. Overbrook’s Lassiter and Caleeb Pinkett will serve as executive producers alongside Tip ‘T.I’ Harris and Brian Sher of Grand Hustle Films. The late John Singleton will also be credited as an executive producer on the project who helped Mays bring the film to fruition. Singleton was a longtime mentor and friend of Mays, who was a series regular for the first two seasons of Singleton’s co-created series Snowfall.


Malcolm M. Mays is writing and directing Flint.
