Gabrielle Union Cast in ‘The Public’ Film
Per published reports, actress Gabrielle Union has signed on to appear in the upcoming dramedy The Public. Via the Hollywood Reporter, Gabrielle will join a cast that already includes Alec Baldwin, Jena Malone, Che Smith, and Taylor Schilling. Emilio Estevez reportedly penned the script and will also act as the film’s director.
The Public will reportedly center around a group of homeless people who stage a sit-in, turning a local public library into a makeshift shelter during a winter storm.
Gabrielle will play an ambitious news reporter who uses the event to bolster her network’s sagging ratings, as well as her own profile.
According to Estevez, The Public asks the question, “Who will care for those individuals who are unable to care for themselves?”
The Public is set to be released in the spring of 2018. Fans hoping to see Gabrielle on the big screen before then can check out her most recent film, Almost Christmas, in theaters now.
