Deadline Hollywood reveals the trailer to Angela Shelton’s HEART, BABY!
Heart, Baby! marks the directorial debut of Shelton and follows George, who at 18 years old was sentenced to 40 years in prison for armed robbery and turned down an offer from the 1984 US Olympic team in exchange for his freedom. In the new trailer, we get to see Akinnagbe in action as George as well as his best friend and songwriter Doc (Jackson Rathbone).
The film also stars Shawn-Caulin Young as his transgender female cellmate Crystal. North Of Two has acquired the distribution rights to the film last year ahead of its world premiere at the Newport Beach Film Festival
