Director Antoine Fuqua and Howie Ronay created a moving black and white PSA video on behalf of Fuqua Films honoring the heroic frontline workers risking their lives and working hard during the coronavirus pandemic.
The video gives glimpses of those working during quarantine: medical professionals, truck drivers, delivery drivers and all those who are helping keep us safe while we are sheltering in place.
“Today our heroes aren’t lifting trophies or pumping up the crowd,” the 48-second PSA said. “They’re not delivering fastballs or reading defenses or racing towards the checkered flag or running out of the tunnel but they’re still bringing us to our feet.”
It concludes: “Thank you for showing us what it means to be a hero.”
Paramount Pictures has shifted the release date of Fuqua’s next film, Infinite from August 7 to May 28, 2021 due to the impact of COVID-19. The film stars Mark Wahlberg and Chiwetel Ejiofor and is an adaptation of the D. Eric Maikranz novel The Reincarnationist Papers
