I love Flyy Girl by Omar Tyree when I read it in my teens, so I'm very excited to share the great news.
Flyy Girl is definitely a classic from Omar and if things go right, the film based on the novel will be just as good.
Omar Tyree sold the rights to the 20-year-old book to Codeblack films for a movie. Omar's confident that the company will do right by the novel and bring it to life while maintaining the essence.
In press statement, Omar commented on the business deal:
“I couldn’t be happier to embark on this journey with Codeblack Films and Global Renaissance Entertainment Group. I have every confidence that my brand has found the perfect home with one of the most effective machines in Hollywood.”
Who do you think would be the best actress to play Tracy's role? I'm thinking of Kerry Washington!
