The Bitter Root Film Adaptation

Hello Gemmies, I have some exciting news for you today! The Bitter Root comics created by David F. Walker, Sanford Greene, and Chuck Brown are being adapted into a film! Variety recently announced Regina King will direct and produce the film alongside Ryan Coogler, Zinzi Coogler, and Sev Ohanian.


The Bitter Root comics follow a family of monster hunters living during the Harlem Renaissance, who use the titular root in their battles against jinoo. The jinoo are monsters born of hate, a supernatural evil birthed when characters are overwhelmed by hateful prejudice. The Sangeryes have created a legacy of exorcising these monsters to stop their hatred from spreading further.
