As soon as Josh Brolin takes a break from starring in every movie ever, he says he’d like to produce a biopic about abolitionist/badass John Brown. As he tells ComingSoon

“I know the character really well. Mark Gordon and I had a conversation, and we said, ‘Let’s do this, let’s get this done.’ People have been wanting to do it forever and there’s a lot of directors who’d love to be involved, so I think now’s the time.”

Just a refresher, John BROWN was actually WHITE. He was a famous advocate of rights for BLACKS, and though he wasn’t BLACK himself, he was HUNG.  (just so we’re clear, that was a reference to penises, not lynchings. …though John Brown actually did get lynched.  man, I wish I could go back in time and not write this post.)
