I remember reading this book when I was in High School, this book was so dope and now it will be turned into a movie…
According to Deadline:
Codeblack Films has tapped Effie Brown to produce the feature film adaptation of Omar Tyree’s bestselling book trilogy Flyy Girl. Brown and her banner Duly Noted will oversee development and recruitment of the creative team alongside Codeblack’s Jeff Clanagan and Quincy Newell. Nicole Jefferson-Asher is on board to write the script.
“I’m so excited to be working with Codeblack Films and Lionsgate on releasing the film adaptation of Omar Tyree’s culturally iconic Flyy Girl trilogy,” said Brown. “These books were a rite of passage for readers worldwide and will prove to be the foundation for an exciting cinematic release.”
Codeblack Films’ EVP & General Manager Quincy Newell and Robert Melnik, Lionsgate’s EVP Business & Legal Affairs, handled the deals. Attorney Vince L. Ravine handled legal duties for Brown. Gersh’s Frank Wuliger represents Jefferson-Asher.
Don’t ruin this for all the real fly girls in the world, whatever happened to them turning the book “The Coldest Winter Ever” by Sister Soldier into a movie?
