As deadline.com says Nicola became a part of Ali LeRoi and Stanley Kalu’s indie movie called ‘The Obituary of Tunde Johnson’
Set in Southern California, the film centers on Tunde Johnson (Silver), a queer, black prep school senior who finds himself in an endless loop of police brutality. Soren O’Connor (Neville) is Johnson’s all-American athlete boyfriend who hides his sexuality from both his conservative father and society by maintaining a relationship with Tunde’s best friend Marley Meyers (Peltz).
Producers are Jason Shuman and Zachary Green, co-creators of the million-dollar screenplay competition called The Launch, which selected Kalu’s script as its first winner. Philanthropists Chuck and Marni Bond are also producing.
Peltz, repped by WME, Definition Entertainment, and Sloane, Offer Weber & Dern, was most recently seen alongside Alex Pettyfer and Jennifer Morrison in Back Roads, which was directed by Pettyfer, as well as IFC Midnight’s thriller Our House, Amazon’s Youth in Oregon, and Hulu’s When The Street Lights Go On.
