That’s a Wrap: ‘Queen & Slim’

Congratulations to the film Queen & Slim cast and crew for wrapping
the Cleveland portion of their filming last week!

Universal Pictures’ Queen & Slim, starring Daniel Kaluuya (Get Out) and Jodie Turner-Smith (Nightflyers), filmed scenes on the east side of Cleveland over four nights last week, despite the formidable cold.

Queen & Slim is the story of a couple whose first date takes an unexpected turn when a police officer pulls them over. The script is based on an original idea and treatment from bestselling author James Frey (A Million Little Pieces).

Directed by Melina Matsoukas (Insecure, Master of None) and written by Lena Waithe (The ChiBones), with executive producer Pamela Hirsch, the film is being produced by Hillman Grad Productions, De La Revolución Films and 3BlackDot. Andrew Coles and Michelle Knudsen are also producing.

We are thrilled that Fall 2018 GCFC Intern Cayla Koslen had the opportunity to work in the Locations Department during their short time in the CLE.

Queen & Slim‘s production now heads to New Orleans to finish filming, and we wish them the best!
