Sundance has just announced the lineup for the 2022 Sundance Film Festival, which will run from January 20, 2022 through January 30, 2022, and features many featured films on the festival’s schedule. Perhaps one of the most remarkable is 892, an independent television series starring Star Wars alum John Boyega with belated Michael K. Williams in one of his last film roles.

The film is based on the true story of Brian Brown-Easley, a Marine and war veteran who died after making a bomb threat in a bank. The film will take a sympathetic look at the story, focusing on the life and background of Brown-Easley. John Boyega will lead the cast as Brown-Easley, whose life is financially precarious after serving in the military. And when a disability check didn’t go through from the Department of Veterans Affairs, he found himself faced with the prospect of homelessness. Worried about the effects on her daughter and feeling she had no choice, Brown-Easley took the fateful step of walking into Wells Fargo Bank and saying, “I’ve got a bomb.”

The role came after Boyega’s quick and complicated exit from Netflix Rebel Ridge. Boyega stars in the film alongside the late Williams, who passed away in September of this year. Williams is best known for his iconic role as Omar on Wire. However, his work spanned several decades and included a rich and memorable variety of roles, from comedy to action and drama. In the last few years, he starred in the critically acclaimed HBO series Lovecraft Country.
