After making an appearance in HBO’s “Lovecraft Country” premiere last year, H.P. Lovecraft’s Cthulhu is set to make a return to the screen in Gordon Hemingway & the Realm of Cthulhu, an upcoming Netflix movie that has Spike Lee among its producers.
Variety reports that Stefon Bristol (See You Yesterday) is on board to direct the feature.
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.”
Hank Woon wrote the original screenplay.
In addition to Spike Lee, Lloyd Levin and Beatriz Levin are also producing.
