Blackbird follows the story of rising singer Noni Jean (Mbatha-Raw) as she attempts to adjust to the life of superstardom. She eventually falls for the young cop, Kaz Nicol (Parker), assigned to protect her. The two lovers pursue their relationship over the objections of their parents.

The movie is written and directed by Gina Prince-Bythewood (Love & BasketballThe Secret Life of Bees) and will be produced by New York Knicks’ forward and Relativity Sports’ client Amar’e Stoudemire through his STATosphere Productions.
