  • A24 has acquired the worldwide rights to adapt Richard Wright's novel Native Son

  • Ashton Sanders is in talks for the lead role in the film. Other potential cast members include Nick Robinson, Margaret Qualley, Bill Camp and KiKi Layne.

  • Pulitzer winning playwright Suzan-Lori Parks is writing the adaption, and Rashid Johnson will make his directing debut.

  • The novel is set in 1930's Chicago on the South Side, but the adaptation will be present day.

Glad to see Ashton getting roles! The supporting cast is good, too.
