They Cloned Tyrone: Release Date, Trailer & Where To Watch

They Cloned Tyrone

They Cloned Tyrone was originally intended for a 2022 release but due to reasons that remain unknown, the movie disappeared from release schedules.

If you have been looking forward to this sci-fi movie, which stars John Boyega, Teyonah Parris, and Jamie Fox, you will be glad to know that it will finally be released later this year. Keep reading if you would like to learn more.

What is They Cloned Tyrone about?

This is the official description of the movie:

A pulpy, sci-fi mystery caper in which an unlikely trio investigates a series of eerie events, alerting them to a nefarious conspiracy lurking directly beneath their hood.

Fontaine, a neighbourhood drug dealer, is shot dead by rival Isaac and then is very shocked to wake up in his bed the next morning unharmed. He and Slick Charles and Yo-Yo begin looking into the incident, and their search eventually leads them to a vast underground complex where a government–backed lab is performing experiments on the local Black population.

Realizing that he is an artificial clone controlled by Nixon, Fontaine initially feels despair, but decides he needs to stand up to these white institutional overlords for the sake of his neighbourhood.

Intrigued? We have seen movies about clones before, most recently Dual and Swan Song, but this one seems to be as much a commentary on the Black experience as it is a sci-fi movie.

The script, which was part of 2019’s Black List, is available to read here. But if you would prefer to watch the movie afresh, without any spoilers, you might want to resist the temptation to check the screenplay out.

When will They Cloned Tyrone be released?

They Cloned Tyrone will be available to watch on Netflix worldwide on July 21st 2023. Expect this one to drop at around 8am (GMT).

Who stars in They Cloned Tyrone?

John Boyega, Teyonah Parris, and Jamie Foxx star as the movie’s central trio, and they are joined by a cast that includes:

  • David Alan Grier
  • Kiefer Sutherland
  • Joshua Mikel
  • J. Alphonse Nicholson
  • Jessica Fontaine

Who is the director of They Cloned Tyrone?

Juel Taylor is the director of this upcoming movie. His previous directing credits are TV-based but he has provided screenplays for a number of movies, including Creed II and Space Jam: A New Legacy.

Admittedly, those movies weren’t particularly great but we still have high hopes for They Cloned Tyrone which has also been written by Taylor.
