Um, what?

Deadline tells me (haha, “tells me,” like we friends) that Warner Brothers Pictures and frequent producing collaborator 3 Arts have purchased a 90-page “script-ment” (a treatment with some script-y elements like dialogue) for a seven-film franchise based on One Thousand and One Nights, the classical Arabic text that spawned the international followings of such fables as Ali Baba, Sinbad and Scheherazde.

Find out more about the new franchise, what I think and what WB and 3 Arts cannot do if this is to work after the jump!

This excites me.

Hot Trailer: Dear White People (October 17, 2014)

I’m sorry Nah, I’m not sorry. I love everything about Justin Simien’s college-based race relations satire, Dear White People. It has just the right amount to controversy, the right amount of truth and a spectrum of portrayals of the young, Black experience. There’s your militantly political Blacks, the “Uncle Toms” and the young Blacks just caught in the crossfire.

It’s got a really interesting cast of players that I recognize from a myriad of other productions (Tessa Thompson and Kyle Gallner from Veronica Mars, Dennis Haysbert from AllState commercial and Tyler James Williams of Everybody Hates Chris among others). I found this so funny (and admittedly a little sad) because I’ve actually heard most of the lines said in this trailer. DWP bound to ruffle some feathers and you know I’ll be there opening day.

A satire that follows the stories of four black students at an Ivy League college where a riot breaks out over a popular ‘African American’ themed party thrown by white students. With tongue planted firmly in cheek, the film explores racial identity in ‘post-racial’ America while weaving a universal story of forging one’s unique path in the world.

I’m excited for Dear White People. It’s been a very long time since we’d gotten a film like this - one featuring a young, almost completely Black cast with a message to deliver, no matter how incendiary. 

What do you think?

Dear White People is written and directed by Justin Simien. It stars Tessa Thompson, Tyler James Williams, Kyle Gallner, Brandon P. Bell, Teyonah Parris and Dennis Haysbert.
