“The Boondocks” Creator Reveals Live-Action “Uncle Ruckus” Movie

Artist, creator, and producer Aaron McGruder is a busy man these days. First, it was revealed that “The Boondocks” season 4 is in production, and now McGruder has announced one of the show’s best known characters is slated for a live-action flick, complete with a teaser clip, and Kickstarter funding campaign.

Like a self-hating, black Archie Bunker on steroids, Uncle Ruckus became a fan favorite among those who understood what purpose the controversial character served in fostering racial discourse. According to the movie’s Kickstarter page:

We are raising funds for an R-rated theatrical comedy featuring Uncle Ruckus, to be produced this year. The movie will be written and directed by AARON MCGRUDER, and stars GARY ANTHONY WILLIAMS – who does the voice of Uncle Ruckus on the animated series. The story, which is currently being written, will not involve any of the other regular BOONDOCKS characters, but rather explore a part of the Ruckus family not seen in the show.

Now, you’d be forgiven for thinking that Uncle Ruckus already appeared on screen in “Django Unchained,” but that was the other self-hating, bald old black dude that riled up viewing audiences. Samuel L. Jackson has even gone so far as to deny any connection to the animated counterpart. Still, there is an uncanny resemblance…
