Gabourey Sidibe To Make Feature Directorial Debut With Thriller ‘Pale Horse’

As if being an Oscar nominated actor and an author wasn't enough, Gabourey Sidibe is also adding film director to her resume.

Written by Asabi Lee and Paul Hart-Wilden (Wolf Town), and based on a story by Chris Courtney Martin (The Last Laugh), Pale Horse centres around Naia, a highly regarded but reclusive African-American YA author living with MS. Naia finds herself enveloped in a dark mystery when she gives shelter to a man who escaped captivity with her long-lost brother.

The thriller is being produced by Effie T. Brown (Dear White People) and Wellington Love (The United States vs. Billie Holiday) together with Gamechanger Films, a production company and development fund that focuses on projects by and about women, people of color, LGBTQ+, and people with disabilities.
