Will we be seeing Amandla Stenberg in an Amma Asante film soon? Fingers crossed!
According to Deadline, Stenberg is in talks to star in Asante’s passion project Where Hand Touch, a romantic period drama set in the 1940s that focuses on the relationship between a mixed race German girl and an SS officer in Berlin.
In 2013, Asante told Screen Daily,
“I have another passion project called Where Hands Touch, which is a 1940s piece set in Germany… It cannot be another eight years. I have been inundated with scripts. I’m not going to leave myself in the same position as 2009 When Hands Touch collapsed due to the financial crisis but also I won’t work on something that isn’t a passion project for me.”
Not much else is known about the project, we hope to hear more news soon.
