Movie about local man opens nationally

RALEIGH

The movie is about the 1970 murder of a black man in North Carolina and the trial that resulted in the acquittals of white men.

It's based on the memoir, "Blood Done Sign My Name," by Tim Tyson, a Duke University professor who grew up in Oxford during the time of the shooting and trial.

Screenwriter Jeb Stuart, who directed "Blood," is best known for writing action films such as "Die Hard" and "The Fugitive." The movie was filmed in North Carolina, mostly in Monroe and Shelby, and stars Nate Parker and Rick Schroder.
