FROM MEME TO SCREEN

A couple years ago, when this meme first made the rounds, somebody posted it in the Legion M private facebook group. It quickly became clear that our community (which was only a few thousand people at the time) would, as the post puts it, "Watch the HELL" out of a Robert Smalls movie. 

Then something unexpected happened. One of our investors told us they wrote a script about Captain Smalls and asked if we'd like to read it. So we did. And it was good. Really good.

CHALLENGE ACCEPTED!

Since then we've made it our mission get this movie made. It's Glory meets Ocean's 11 -- an amazing and uplifting story about the most audacious heist in American History. AND IT'S ALL TRUE!!

Today Legion M is over 125,000 strong, and we've partnered with The Wolper Organization (producers of Roots) and legendary actor/producer/director Bill Duke to bring this movie to the screen. We're searching for the perfect actor to play a 22 year old Robert Smalls, and the perfect director to tell this story the way it was meant to be told.
