Ice Cube Signs To Play Claressa Shields Boxing Trainer In ‘Flint Strong’ Biopic
'Flint Strong' is a new Claressa Shields biopic being put together, and the movie has some heavy hitters in the cast.
'Flint Strong' is written by Barry Jenkins, and will be directed by Rachel Morrison. Big news broke this week as Ice Cube signed on to play Shields former trainer, Jason Crutchfield.
Ryan Destiny will be playing the role of Claressa Shields in the movie that is based off of 'T-Rex', a 2015 documentary. Destiny tweeted about her excitement to play the role, and the all star cast that is coming together.
We are thrilled that Shields is getting the spotlight with a big time feature film. It feels like despite rewriting the record books, she has never gotten the national recognition that she deserves.
This will be a great way for those that have been sleeping on the GWOAT to get acquainted.
