Gabrielle Union, Taraji P. Henson & Gamechanger Films to produce graphic novel feature “Sorcerority”
The Effie T. Brown’s Gamechanger Films (The Inspection) is partnering with Gabrielle Union’s I’ll Have Another Productions and Taraji P. Henson’s TPH Entertainment to produce a feature film adaptation of graphic novel Sorcerority from co-authors Mikhail Sebastian and George Watson.
Sorcerority, according to Deadline, follows a young African-American girl, Melanie, who, like her late mother, enrolls into a historically African-American coven and university of magic. She soon discovers her enrollment into the school may not be entirely of her own choosing, but rather the calculated actions of a higher authority. In between her studies, she uncovers her familial connection to the school’s mysterious past, as well as her pivotal role in its future.
Gamechanger secured the rights to the fantasy graphic novel earlier this year. Brown will produce on behalf of Gamechanger. Union is producing alongside Kian Gass who will oversee from I’ll Have Another Productions and Henson and Christine Conley on behalf of TPH Entertainment.
