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.

Regina King Kicks Off Oscars 2021 with Epic Entrance, Explains Masks Protocol at the Event (Video)

There’s no host at the 2021 Academy Awards, but Regina King kicked things off by welcoming the audience to the show at this year’s event!

The 50-year-old Oscar-winning actress made an epic entrance through the halls of Union Station while walking to the stage of the show on Sunday night (April 25) in Los Angeles.

When Regina arrived on stage, she opened the show with a speech about social justice and the pandemic. She also explained the masks protocol at the event, revealing that they’re treating the show like a movie set.

“When we’re rolling, masks off. And when we’re not rolling, masks on,” she said.

Regina also commented on the Derek Chauvin trial. She said, “I have to be honest: If things had gone differently this past week in Minneapolis, I might have traded in my heels for marching boots… I know that a lot of you people at home want to reach for your remote when you feel like Hollywood is preaching to you—but as a mother of a Black son, I know the fear that so many live with, and no amount of fame or fortune changes that.”

Earlier in the night, Regina walked the red carpet with Aldis Hodge, who stars in the movie One Night Miami, a film she directed.

FYI: Regina is wearing a Louis Vuitton dress and Forevermark jewelry.

She also promised that the projects ahead are period pieces: “I feel like we’re kind of in a place now where we definitely need to correct some of the revised history, and I feel like there is something very powerful with being reminded of from whence we came…from where we’ve come and where we want to go.”
