"The Good Lord Bird" is an award-winning book that takes place in the early years of the United States, when we were just a group of colonies, and slavery was still acceptable, Soon, it will be heading to the big screen starring Jaden Smith!
Although a dark time in our past, "The Good Lord Bird" takes a different, more satirical look on the times. Set to star in the pic are two of our favorite actors. We enjoyed watching Jaden Smith grow up, and now we can't wait to see him tell the story in the role of Henry "Onion" Shackleford.
Meanwhile, Liev Schrieber (he was Sabretooth in X-Men Origins: Wolverine), will be starring as John Brown - an abolitionist who winds up helping out Onion in his travels.
The Good Lord Bird will see through several key points of the early colonial era leading up to the beginning of the Civil War. Make sure you check back to KidsPickFlicks for more details on The Good Lord Bird as they develop!
