The True Story of Henry Berry Lowery 

Henry Berry Lowery led a gang in North Carolina during and after the American Civil War. He is sometimes viewed as a Robin Hood type figure, especially by the Lumbee people, who consider him a Native American ancestor and a pioneer in the fight for civil rights and tribal self-determination. Lowery was described by George Alfred Townsend, a correspondent for the New York Herald in the late 19th century, as one of those remarkable executive spirits that arises now and then in a raw community without advantages other than those given by nature."

The film will be directed by a golden globe director (To Be Announced) and several other stars will have lead roles. The production will be that of indigenous minority and women.  Stay tuned for more information.
