Lovecraftian horror continues to have a resurgence on screens both big and small with Netflix and producer Spike Lee‘s upcoming movie Gordon Hemingway & the Realm of Cthulhu, which was just announced earlier this week. Stefon Bristol (See You Yesterday) is on board to direct the feature, which may star the leading man from HBO’s “Lovecraft Country”!
Variety reports that Jonathan Majors, fresh off playing Atticus Freeman in Misha Green’s HBO series, is currently in talks to star in Gordon Hemingway & the Realm of Cthulhu.
If he signs on, Majors will be playing the title character. Gordon Hemingway, that is.
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.
