wonder if he asked oprah and tyler perry
LOL, first thing that came to mind. What white heroes? They are scared because what happened in Haiti  represents all the fears that they had about black people taking vengeance on them and refusing to display the other cheek.
 
I'm not surprised that Danny Glover is having issues. Other filmmakers have tried to get a project like this going for years (I know of filmmakers from Guadeloupe and Martinique) but they could never come up with the funds because the whites would always complain that "there's no white heroes". And since it's a period piece, a movie like this requires a lot of funds. I hope Dany succeeds in getting it made.

I'm glad that an American filmmaker is taking this on. They have a bigger film industry and more money floating around. I was hoping for years that Spike Lee would take on the project, lol.

Paris.– US actor Danny Glover, who plans an epic next year on Haitian independence hero Toussaint-Louverture, said he slaved to raise funds for the movie because financiers complained there were no white heroes.

"Producers said 'It's a nice project, a great project... where are the white heroes?'" he told the press during a stay in Paris this month for a seminar on film.

"I couldn't get the money here, I couldn't get the money in Britain. I went to everybody. You wouldn't believe the number of producers based in Europe, and in the States, that I went to," he said.

D"The first question you get, is 'Is it a black film?' All of them agree, it's not going to do good in Europe, it's not going to do good in Japan.

"Somebody has to prove that to be a lie!", he said. "Maybe I'll have the chance to prove it."

"Toussaint," Glover's first project as film director, is about Francois Dominique Toussaint Louverture (1743-1803), a former slave and one of the fathers of Haiti's independence from France in 1804, making it the first black nation to throw off imperial rule and become a republic.

The uprising he led was bloodily put down in 1802 by 20,000 soldiers dispatched to the Caribbean by Napoleon Bonaparte, who then re-established slavery after its ban by the leaders of the French Revolution.

Due to be shot in Venezuela early next year, the film will star Don Cheadle, Mos Def, Wesley Snipes and Angela Bassett.

Please Danny don't fail us...don't cave into any type of pressure.  I will travel to a different state to support this movie.   Because y'all know they gone try to shade him.   It's gone be on some independent movie house type of sh*t or only showing in NY, LA and Atlanta or summin'.

Jimmy John looks good in this role.  His career seems to be blossoming.
