Vivica A. Fox Becomes The First Black Female POTUS In New Film
Fox lands presidential role with 'Crossbreed.'
Vivica A. Fox is set to make cinematic history.
With her starring role in the forthcoming film, Crossbreed, the 52-year-old actress will become the first black woman to play POTUS on the silver screen.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, the film’s plot involves a collective of “retired military officials” sent on a mission to “retrieve an extraterrestrial being from an illegal Medical Facility using its DNA to manufacture weapons.”
Director Brandon Slagle explained why Fox is perfect for the job. “When my producers brought up the idea of Vivica in the role," he recalled. "It was a lightning bolt. It was a fantastic idea. Someone who could light up a room but also has a commanding presence. Our President is positive and proactive, not the grim figure as is usually portrayed in these types of movies."
Fox shared her excitement on Instagram Thursday (Sept. 29). “I’m so excited n HONORED to share with you all the news that I will be playing THE President Of The United States in the upcoming film#CrossBreed," she wrote. "It's the first time in a FILM an African American female has been selected to play POTUS!”
