The trend of having overly-long titles continues. Jamie Foxx has been picked up by DreamWorks to topline The Zebra Murders: A Season of Killing, Racial Madness, and Civil Rights.
And what's wrong with just The Zebra Murders?
Foxx for The Zebra Murders
Based on the book by Prentice Earl Sanders and Bennett Cohen, The Zebra Murders: A Season of Killing, Racial Madness, and Civil Rights chronicles the series of racially motivated serial killings -- black on white -- that took place in San Francisco in 1973 and 1974. Jamie Foxx will play Sanders, who was one of two black police detectives who led the team that cracked the case. Amid their investigation, Sanders and his partner fought harassment within the police department and organized a union of minority policemen who brought a lawsuit against the city for discrimination, which they ultimately won. Sanders later went on to become chief of police.
