‘Insecure’ star and creator Issa Rae and Jordan Peele (‘Get Out’) are teaming up for a supernatural feature based on Leyna Krow’s short story ‘Sinkhole.’
The story centres on a young family “who moves into their dream home, except for the gaping sinkhole in the backyard. The sinkhole manages to take all things that are broken and destroyed and make them perfect again. But what if that thing is a person?”
Deadline describes the film as a genre piece “that engages on the question of female perfection and identity.”
‘Sinkhole’ is being developed a potential starring vehicle for Rae, who will be producing with Montrel McKay and Sara Rastogi for Rae’s Issa Rae Productions banner. Peele and Monkeypaw Productions partner Win Rosenfeld will co-produce.
