The first time that we met George Tillman Jr., he shook our hand and was genuinely kind and attentive, even though he was in the middle of directing a film. That was a long time ago when we visited the set of The Longest Yard.
The director is back with The Hate U Give and though we’re not sure exactly who OakTreeTee is on Instagram, they post a lot of great behind the scenes photos from the film. But they also post a lot of pictures of George directing. We love it because it feels like they are capturing the meticulous thought and detail that he is putting into every scene.
We’re loving that we’re getting to see all of the photos that are appearing across social media. It’s nice to see, because this movie is so anticipated and we honestly believe that it’s going to be a can’t miss film.
Because we’ve read the book and know just how important it is.
If you aren’t familiar with the book – first, I encourage you to go out and get yourself a copy. The book is about Starr, a girl who came from a poverty stricken neighborhood, but now attends a prep school. She saw her best friend get gunned down by the police and must find the best way to speak out about the incident while gravitating both worlds.
There is no release date as of yet, but the movie is currently filming. Be sure to check out all of the photos in the gallery above.
