Deadline is reporting that filmmaker Paul Greengrass (The Bourne Supremacy and Ultimatum, Green Zone, United 93) is moving ahead with Memphis, a movie about Martin Luther King Jr. The film reportedly will focus on King's time in Memphis in 1968. He came to Memphis during the city sanitation workers' strike and was assassinated on April 4th.

Production will begin in June. No word yet on where it will be shot, or who will be in it. Universal Pictures will make the film, to be written and directed by Greengrass. Scott Rudin (The Social Network and True Grit) is producing.
