A new Netflix project was announced this week, a Lovecraftian horror movie titled "Gordon Hemingway & the Realm of Cthulhu".
Spike Lee is a producer of the film, with Stefon Bristol (See You Yesterday) directing. Variety reported that the film is based on an original screenplay by Hank Woon, with rewrites by Fredrica Bailey.
Jonathan Majors, who was recently seen as Atticus Freeman in HBO’s “Lovecraft Country” is in talks to star as the title character.
"Gordon Hemingway & the Realm of Cthulhu is 'set in East Africa in 1928 and centers on Gordon Hemingway, a roguish Black American gunslinger, who teams up with the elite warrior Princess Zenebe of Ethiopia to rescue the country’s kidnapped regent from an ancient evil.'" The movie is NOT based on any of Lovecraft's works.
