Regina King Hopes ‘One Night in Miami’ Will Be a ‘Call to Action’

Regina King’s directorial debut “One Night in Miami” takes viewers back to a fictionalized 1964 meeting between Black icons Malcolm X, Muhammad Ali, Jim Brown and Sam Cooke in a Miami hotel.

“Extra’s” Cheslie Kryst caught up with Regina, who is already getting Oscar buzz for the film.

Regina said, “I really hope that the audience receives the film the way the critics so far have been receiving the film, because in many ways… there is a hope that people leave this film and it’s a call to action.”

“One Night in Miami” premieres Friday on Amazon Prime.
