Ryan Coogler To Produce David F. Walker, Sanford Greene, And Chuck Brown’s Bitter Root Movie

Black Panther and Creed director Ryan Coogler has made a deal with Legendary to produce a movie based on David F. Walker, Sanford Greene, and Chuck Brown’s Bitter Root comic. Joining Coogler on producing duties are Zinzi Evans and Sev Ohanian.

Published by Image Comics, Bitter Root is set during the vibrant Harlem Renaissance of 1924 and focuses on a fractured family of once-great monster hunters who must face an unimaginable evil that descends upon New York City.

Five issues of the series have been published so far and it received nominations for a 2019 Eisner Award for Best New Series and a 2019 Ringo award for Best Series.

Other current projects for Coogler include producing Space Jam 2 and writing and directing the Black Panther sequel.
