Call her the Black cinema queen. Nia Long is teaming up with Anthony Mackie and Samuel L. Jackson in “The Banker,” a true-life story about two African-American real estate entrepreneurs who convince a Caucasian man to pose as their boss during racially motivated times in the 1960s.  

Nia Long is no stranger to the classics. Look at her resume. Dating back to her first film, “Boyz n the Hood,” in 1991 to other cult classics like “Friday,” “Love Jones,” and “The Best Man,” Long shouldn’t disappoint in her latest film.

“The Banker” highlights businessmen Bernard Garrett (Mackie) and Joe Morris (Jackson). Long stars as Garrett’s wife, Eunice Garrett, but proves to be more than just a banker’s wife as she helps Garrett and Morris train an unexperienced Caucasian man, Matt Steiner (Nicholas Hoult), to pose as their boss while they pose as Steiner’s janitor and chauffeur.

With Eunice’s help, Garrett and Morris become two of the wealthiest real estate owners in the country. Ultimately, their success becomes threatened when the federal government learns who’s actually running the business.
