Deadline is reporting that Issa Rae is set to produce a new female-identity film alongside the ‘Get Out’ producer. Deadline goes further to say that the movie will be based on a 2011 short story by author, Leyna Krow.
Krow revealed that she wanted to explore the notion of female perfection and was particularly interested in the ways society and cultures can promote the concept of women as imperfect or broken.
The film, which was won by Universal Studios, will take the angle of social commentary on female identity through the lens of mystery and sci-fi.
Social media users have now taken to the microblogging website to share their excitement, with one Twitter user saying: “You had me at Issa Rae and Jordan Peele. Just take all my money.”
