DUBAI: US actor Yahya Abdul-Mateen II is set to star in Amazon Studios’ upcoming movie “I Helped Destroy People,” Deadline reported on Monday.
The Muslim star will also produce the FBI drama alongside US actor Michael B. Jordan.
The film is based on a New York Times article with the same name about an FBI agent Terry Albury, played by Abdul-Mateen II, who was tasked with observing and infiltrating Muslim communities after 9/11.
He later leaked detailed documents about the operations to the media, which landed him in prison.
In 2020, Abdul-Mateen II won his first Emmy award for Outstanding Supporting Actor for his role in HBO’s “Watchmen.”
He has starred in films like “Candyman,” “The Matrix Resurrections” and “Ambulance,” which is currently in cinemas in the Middle East.
His upcoming role is Black Manta in “Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom,” which is scheduled for release in 2023.
