WATCHMEN Star Regina King To Helm BITTER ROOT Image Comics Adaptation For Legendary

Following her Academy Award-nominated directorial debut One Night in Miami, multi-time Emmy Award-winning Watchmen star Regina King has signed on to helm an adaptation of Image Comics' Bitter Root for Legendary Entertainment.

Described as "Get Out meets Blade," the Eisner Award-winning comic created by David F. Walker, Sanford Greene and Chuck Brown is set during the Harlem Renaissance in the 1920s, and focuses on a family of once-great monster hunters who must face a new evil that descends upon New York.

“For generations, the Sangeryes have hunted and cured those infected by a supernatural force that feeds off of prejudice and transforms humans into monsters," reads Legendary's logline. "But with most of the family gone, the remaining Sangeryes disagree over saving or killing the monsters.”

King will also produce along with her sister Reina King via their Royal Ties banner, Black Panther director Ryan Coogler, and Zinzi Coogler and Sev Ohanian via Proximity Media. No release or production start date has been announced.
