After his latest stint in Avengers: Endgame, actor Don Cheadle is set to star in a movie that he will produce himself. The movie, which is entitled Prince of Darkness, will portray the inspiring story of the first Black millionaire, Jeremiah G. Hamilton.

Cheadle will be teaming up once again with Steven Baigelman, who co-wrote the Miles Ahead screenplay with him in 2015. This time, Baigelman will write the script for the movie adapted from Shane White’s book Prince of Darkness: The Story of Jeremiah G. Hamilton, Wall Street’s First Black Millionaire which won the 2015 Society for Historians of the Early American Republic Best Book Prize.

Hamilton, who escaped from Haiti in 1828, became a successful Wall Street financier in less than a decade.


He worked with white people in the business world, married a white woman, bought a mansion in rural New Jersey, and owned railroad stock on trains he was not legally allowed to even ride. He reportedly accumulated about $2 million until his death in 1875. Hamilton became the richest Black man in the U.S. as he braved the norm during that time. The inspiring story that will be adapted to film is expected to bring more awareness about his life and how became known as the Prince of Darkness.
