Apple TV+ acquired distribution rights to ‘The Banker’ in July of 2019. It will have its world premiere at the AFI Fest on November 21, 2019.
“The Banker is the true story of two African American entrepreneurs, Bernard Garrett (Mackie) and Joe Morris (Jackson), who during the 1950’s tried to circumvent the racial limitations of the era and take on the establishment by recruiting a working class white man, Matt Steiner (Hoult) and training him to pose as the head of their business empire while they posed as a janitor and a chauffeur.
Nia Long plays Bernard’s wife Eunice. Garrett and Morris become two of the wealthiest and most successful real estate owners in the country with Steiner as their front man, but their success brings about unforeseen risk of exposure that threatens everything.”
Apple TV has scheduled ‘The Banker’ to be released on December 6, 2019, in a limited release, followed by digital streaming in January 2020. Bleecker Street will co-distribute the film.
