Ludacris to Star in New Racially Charged Film "The Ride".
We've been loving the original content that streaming services are providing lately and Amazon Prime is one of the ones that never disappoints. The streaming giant has given us everything from "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel" to "Good Omens" and now, it's tackling something a little more edgy.
Amazon has enlisted Chris "Ludacris" Bridges to star in their new, original, film "The Ride". In the film Luda takes in a white child who was raised as a white supremecist! "The Ride" follows John McCord, who is taken in by Eldridge (Ludacris) and Marianna Buultjens (Sasha Alexander) after a violent, racially-charged incident.
Here's the official description:
"Eldridge makes it his mission to overcome the challenges of John’s white supremacist upbringing and slowly begins to forge a relationship through his foster son’s fascination with extreme sports by giving John his first bike. Rooted by this newfound passion, the family builds a bond of mutual respect, love and together they speed toward BMX glory and ultimately, redemption."
Check out the trailer.
This movie looks like it's going to be a tear-jerking lesson for the masses!
"The Ride" is coming to Amazon Prime Video on Friday November 13th.
