In her first move since winning acclaim for her Oscar-nominated directorial debut, One Night in Miami, Regina King has set her sights on a monster-filled, 1920s-set race-themed comic book adaptation.
Bitter Root is an adaptation of the Image Comics title created by David F. Walker, Sanford Greene and Chuck Brown for Legendary Entertainment, the company behind the recent box office hit Godzilla vs. Kong.
King will also produce the project along with Reina King via their Royal Ties banner. The two join a producing team that includes Black Panther filmmaker Ryan Coogler, Zinzi Coogler and Sev Ohanian, who are producing via their shingle, Proximity Media.
Described as a sort of Get Out meets Blade, the Vampire Hunter, Bitter Root is set in 1924 during the Harlem Renaissance and tells of the Sangeryes, a family of once-great monster hunters, who face an evil that descends upon New York.
