is returning to HBO for an adaptation of Walter Mosley's The Right Mistake. Fifteen years after first playing the part, Fishburne will reprise the role of Socrates Fortlow, an ex-con looking for redemption after spending 27 years in the slammer.
Last time we saw Fishburne play the former crim with a conscious was in the HBO TV movie Always Outnumbered and I think it's a real coup for the network to get Fishburne back on board for another adaptation.
The project is still in early development, but we should start seeing progress on it sometime next year.
Excited about the return of Socrates Fortlow?
