Issa Rae, La La Anthony, Angelica Nwandu (The Shaderoom Founder), and Thembi Banks are teaming up to deliver the horror comedy film, ‘Juju’.
The project is still in the early stages so there are not a lot of plot specifics. However, it will be based on Nwandu’s original concept and she will also write the script.
Rae and Anthony are executive producing the upcoming horror comedy for Universal Pictures and Banks will make her studio feature directorial debut with the project.
Longtime Rae partner Deniese Davis will also produce and Sara Rastogi will oversee for HooRae. Additionally, Universal’s Senior Executive Vice President of Production Erik Baiers will be the studio’s point person on the genre hybrid project.
Nwandu also penned the 2018 film Night Comes On, which The A.V. Club described as a film “prettified by plush, delicate lighting and lens flares” with “a tenuous grasp of tension.” Nwandu was also named to The Root 100 list in 2017.
