(AllHipHop News) New director Jordan Peele is linking up with veteran OG Spike Lee, to produce a new thriller about the Ku Klux Klan (KKK).

The pair are teaming up to make "Black Klansman,” about the true story of an African-American police officer, who managed to infiltrate the KKK.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, the movie tells the tale of Ron Stallworth, who was a black detective in Colorado Springs.

By using various communication methods of the day, he managed to convince local members of the KKK that he was a white supremacist.
