George Floyd’s Daughter Working On His Biopic

George Floyd’s daughter is helping bring his life story to the big screen.

According to Variety, Floyd’s daughter, Gianna Floyd, and her mother, Roxie Washington, are working as executive producers on an upcoming film called “Daddy Saved the World.”

On May 25, 2020, George Floyd was killed by Officer Derek Chauvin, as he forced him to the ground and kneeled on his neck for nine minutes.

Screenwriter Gregory R. Anderson is writing the script but a director has yet to be selected. It’s been authorized not to depict Floyd as a perfect person, the press release for the film described it as a “gritty drama of a man and his community thrust into the fiery light of history.” 

“We are excited the world will see the real, jovial, and loving George we know. This film will humanize him, embody the essence of his life, and hopefully reignite efforts to pass the George Floyd Justice in Policing Act. It’s time for justice and equality for all,” said Washington.
