“I couldn’t get the money here, I couldn’t get the money in Britain. I went to everybody. You wouldn’t believe the number of producers based in Europe, and in the States, that I went to,” he said.

Glover’s first project as film director, is about Toussaint L’ouverture and the Haitian rebellion. The government of Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez approved nearly $30 million toward the movie. Don Cheadle, Mos Def, Wesley Snipes and Angela Bassett all agreed to do the film…if it can ever be made.
