Regina King blew us away as Angela Abar in HBO’s Watchmen, and now she’s diving back into comic books on the other side of the camera, directing the film adaptation of Image Comics’ race-themed Bitter Root for Legendary Entertainment, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Bitter Root, created by David F. Walker, Sanford Greene, and Chuck Brown, tells the story of the monster-hunting Sangreye family during the Harlem Renaissance. Here’s Legendary’s official synopsis: “For generations, the Sangeryes have hunted and cured those infected by a supernatural force that feeds off of prejudice and transforms humans into monsters. But with most of the family gone, the remaining Sangeryes disagree over saving or killing the monsters.”

Legendary is calling the film a cross between Blade and Get Out. The book was nominated for an Eisner in 2019 for best new series.

In addition to directing, Regina King will produce along with Reina King and Ryan Coogler, among others. Bryan Edward Hill is rewriting the first draft. Regina King most recently directed One Night in Miami… and won an Emmy Award for 2019’s Watchmen show, our #1 show of 2019.
