Regina King To Direct 'Bitter Root' Comic Book Movie Adaptation

Regina King has lined up another new movie to direct, according to Collider.

The 50-year-old One Night in Miami helmer will next step behind the camera for Bitter Root.

Set during the vibrant Harlem Renaissance of 1924, Bitter Root is a racially charged monster movie that follows a fractured family of once-great monster hunters who face an unimaginable evil that descends upon New York City.

For generations, the Sangeryes have hunted and cured those infected by a supernatural force that feeds off the prejudice of the era, transforming humans into monsters. Though many Sangeryes have died in the line of duty, the surviving family members have the unenviable choice to save or kill the creatures in hopes of thwarting an invasion.

Bitter Root‘s script is being re-written by Bryan Edward Hill and based off the comic book story from David F. Walker, Sanford Green and Chuck Brown, who will also be executive producing.

Regina is also going to be producing with Ryan Coogler and his Proximity Media partners Zinzi Coogler and Sev Ohanian.

Just recently, Regina opened up about what she hoped for her next projects.
