The first trailer for Spike Lee's BlacKkKlansman has arrived after the film was screened at the 2018 Cannes Film Festival.

The film will be based on Stallworth's own 2014 memoir "Black Klansman", with the screenplay adapted by Charlie Wachtel and David Rabinowitz as well as by Spike Lee and Kevin Willmont.

This looks to be Lee's most commercial project in years, as Focus Features really seems to be selling this with something of an Ocean's Eleven vibe. He starts by building a relationship over the phone with KKK leader David Duke (played by Topher Grace). The film is based on a true story of an African-American cop who went undercover to infiltrate the Ku Klux Klan.

According to Deadline, Ron Stallworth (Ballers' John David Washington) is on a personal and career-defining mission to infiltrate the KKK, but desperately needs a white face to do the actual, in-person police work-which is where Flip Zimmerman (Adam Driver) comes in.

BlacKkKlansman had its world premiere on Monday at the Cannes Film Festival, where it will compete for the Palm d'Or. Both BlacKkKlansman and Pope Francis will be released by Focus Features, the former on August 10, coinciding with the one-year anniversary of the deadly Charlottesville riots. Get Out's Jordan Peele served as a producer alongside Lee.
