After months of patiently waiting, They Cloned Tyrone is finally on its way to Netflix later this week!
The 2023 Netflix film is like an episode of Black Mirror and Cyberpunk: Edgerunners rolled into one, as it takes sci-fi and combines it with a futuristic story that will surely keep you on the edge of your seats.
Read the official synopsis for the film below (via Netflix Media Center):
"A series of eerie events thrusts an unlikely trio onto the trail of a nefarious government conspiracy in this pulpy mystery caper."
Although the plot behind this Netflix film is more than enough of a reason for you to tune in, we believe that the cast and crew behind this title will convince you even more, especially because it’s filled with celebrities you definitely know and love.
Here’s who’s who in They Cloned Tyrone!
Who’s in the cast of They Cloned Tyrone?
John Boyega, the British actor who has starred in The Woman King, Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens, and Small Axe, plays the role of Fontaine in this 2023 title. Fontaine is a hustler who sets out to uncover a strange conspiracy unfolding in his neighborhood that has people getting cloned, including himself.
Fontaine is joined by a pimp named Slick Charles (played by Jamie Foxx) and a pro named Yo-Yo (played by Teyonah Parris) who also want to get to the bottom of the strange happenings. But they’ll find that even with their strength in numbers, they still can’t wrap their heads around what exactly is going on and, more importantly, how to put a stop to it all.
