Netflix has acquired the rights to Eric Brown’s short story Blink Speed, which will be adapted to film starring and produced by GRAMMY, Tony, Emmy winner, and two-time Academy Award nominee Cynthia Erivo. Brown is set to adapt the film.
Blink Speed begins after a near-death experience and a young woman is plagued by a rare and mysterious savant ability that may be the key to unlocking the truth behind her fractured memory and past.
Erivo will next be seen in Disney’s Pinocchio with Tom Hanks and is currently in production on Luther with Idris Elba for Netflix. She is also starring in Apple’s upcoming anthology series Roar. This summer, Cynthia will begin production on Jon Chu’s Wicked starring as Elphaba opposite Ariana Grande.
Along with Erivo, producers also include Solome Williams for Edith’s Daughter and Matt Jackson for Jackson Pictures. Joanne Lee for Jackson Pictures will executive produce.
