They Cloned Tyrone is a sci-fi comedy movie starring Teyonah Parris, Jaime Foxx, and John Boyega that centers around a series of eerie events in a Black neighborhood that brings together an oddball trio of characters—a drug dealer, a pimp, and a sex worker—who discover a government conspiracy.

Is They Cloned Tyrone based on a true story?

No, They Cloned Tyrone is an homage to the Blaxploitation films of the 1970s—films that were mostly low-budget movies intended for “urban” audiences and starring Black actors. Blaxploitation movies weren’t mainstream, but several became cult classics like Shaft (1971), Black Belt Jones (1974), and The Last Dragon (1985). They Cloned Tyrone is a parody similar to movies like I’m Gonna Git You Sucka (1988) and Black Dynamite (2009). It’s not based on real-life events.
