Tim Story is one of Hollywood’s best kept secrets. While the fight for more Black directors behind the camera continues,  Story has helmed a major superhero franchise (“Fantastic Four”)  and cranked out comedic hits like “Barbershop,” “Think Like A Man” and the current #1 movie in the country, “Ride Along.”  All together, Story’s movies total $942 million in worldwide box office sales, making him the highest grossing Black director in history (Tyler Perry ranks #2 with $732 million).
