Get Out Producer to Make Black Lesbian Horror Movie
|We're all aware that Jordan Peele's Get Out is one of the best films of the year. The only thing that could have possibly made the comedic horror film better? A whole bunch of lesbians dropped in. Thankfully, that's what Get Out producer Jason Blum is working on next.
According to The New York Times, Blum is partnering up with Bessie and Mudbound filmmaker Dee Rees to create a new horror movie about black lesbians living in suburbia.
The currently untitled film is based on Rees' own experiences in rural America—she said in the interview, "You’ve got me and my wife, two black lesbians, and when we first moved in, we fought every day over all these little things: ‘Why is this over there? Did you move that?' Maybe it was a ghost. Or maybe it was some other force—like us not wanting to be there or fitting in."
A feature film with lesbian women of color as the protagonists, set in an exciting, scary, politically-charged horror climate? Count us way, way in. And if this next movie has any of the cultural sway its producer's previous movie did, we'll likely have a big gay blockbuster on our hands.
