The film comes from the director of ‘See you yesterday’, Stefon Bristol.
In 2019, Netflix launched See you yesterday, a time travel film about the attempt to stop the death of a man by police shooting. The film, from the director Stefon bristol and producer Spike lee, it was a hit for the streamer. Now, this trio of power comes together again to put a unique twist on a well-known genre: horror, specifically of the Lovecraftian type, Eldritch that favors monsters! Deadline reports that Bristol will direct and Lee will produce the next Netflix movie. Gordon Hemingway and the Kingdom of Cthulhu.
The film, based on an original script by Hank woon with rewrites of See you yesterday co-writer Fredrica Baileyfollows Gordon Hemingway, an African American adventure hero, who teams up with a fearsome Ethiopian warrior princess to rescue her ruler from a mystical, ancient and evil force. From its business title to this deliciously pulpy premise, it seems Bristol and Lee are making their own version of a Indiana Jones-It’s that serial adventure horror movie, with more terrifying monsters (Cthulhu is a bloody tentacle monster, and a scary one to boot) and inclusion recovery to boot. Maybe this is the MCU for Lovecraft countryDCEU?
Beyond Lee, the film will be produced by Oliver Oftedal Y Tom Olsson for Goodbye Kansas Infinite Entertainment production company. Bristol will also participate to direct the high-concept thriller. To breathe (from a script by Doug simon), about a near future in which breathable air is scarce and a family must fight for their part. Bristol seems to be turning out to be one of the most intriguing genre directors to watch and take notice of; a fascinating and grateful choice for Lee to guide and continue producing.
