Amazon is making a KKK movie led by Joseph Gordon-Levitt

The film is period drama titled K Troop, which is set in the post-Civil War period and tells the story of the eponymous elite US Army group tasked with eliminating the white supremacist group in the 1870s. It’s reported that Joseph Gordon-Levitt will play Major Lewis Merrill, the leader of the division, who built “a sprawling network of informants, including a number of local African-Americans, who risked their lives to piece together the secretive workings of the KKK.” – Matt Brian, Engadget
