Chadwick Boseman Didn’t Read ‘Wakanda Forever’ Script Before He Died


Chadwick Boseman didn’t read the script for ‘Black Panther: Wakanda Forever’ before his death in 2020, according to the film’s director.

Ryan Coogler told “Wakanda Forever: The Official Black Panther Podcast” that he offered Boseman a chance to read the script, but, at the time, the actor declined.

Host Ta-Nehisi Coates had asked where Coogler was in the writing process when he found out Boseman had died.

“I just finished it, man. My last conversation called him, asking if he wanted to read it before I got any notes from the studio,” he said. “That was the last time we spoke to each other. And yeah, so I, you know, he died maybe a few weeks after he finished.

Coogler said he could “tell something was wrong” with the star and could tell he had health issues.

Boseman battled colon cancer before his death but had not widely shared his diagnosis.

“He was tired, my brother. I could tell he was tired. I had been trying to reach him for a few days and Denzel [Washington] tried to reach him too,” he said. “So I texted him and was like, ‘Hey man, Denzel said he was looking for you too.’ Because he just did ‘Ma Rainey’ for Denzel. So he called me. And I could tell he was lying down. We were talking. And Simone [Boseman] was with him. And (laughs) he kicks Simone out, because he told her he didn’t want her to hear anything that might get her in trouble with the NDA. And she didn’t want to leave him. So I could tell something was up. But they joked and laughed.

On the script, Coogler said Boseman “didn’t want to read it because he didn’t want to interfere with any notes the studio might have. So he thought, ‘It’s better if I can read it later.’ But I found out later that he was too tired to read anything.
