Bitter Root by Chuck Brown, David F. Walker, and Sanford Greene is headed to the big screen, and Regina King is set to produce and direct the adaptation.
Bitter Root is an ongoing comic book series following the Sangerye family, who once were known as the greatest monster hunters of all time and specialized in curing the souls of those infected by hate. But those days are fading. A terrible tragedy has claimed most of the family, leaving the surviving cousins divided between by the desire to cure monsters or to kill them. Now, though, there’s a new breed of monster loose on the streets of Harlem, and the Sangerye family must either come together or watch the human race fall to untold evil.
According to Deadline, Bryan Edward Hill is rewriting the draft of the scrip.
