Angelique Jackson of Variety is reporting legendary filmmaker Spike Lee is producing “Gordon Hemingway & the Realm of Cthulhu” for Netflix. The film will be directed by Stefon Bristol, who’s independent award-winning film “See You Yesterday,” was also produced by Lee for Netflix, making it the second time the two have worked together.
Lee will produce the film alongside “Da 5 Bloods” producers Lloyd Levin and Beatriz Levin, who initially optioned the spec screenplay for “Gordon Hemingway” from Hank Woon before bringing the project to Bristol and Lee.
The new feature, based on an original screenplay by Hank Woon, is set in East Africa in 1928 and centers on Gordon Hemingway, a roguish Black American gunslinger, who teams up with the elite warrior Princess Zenebe of Ethiopia to rescue the country’s kidnapped regent from an ancient evil.
