The past never ceases to haunt us...
...Via Deadline, Zoe Renee (Black Lightning) and Amber Gray (Escape at Dannemora) have been tapped to co-star opposite Regina Hall in Master for Amazon, a timely supernatural flick written and directed by Mariama Diallo (Hair Wolf)!
In Master, the film:
"Follows three black women who strive to find their place at the celebrated Ancaster College, an elite university in New England. The school was built on the site of a Salem-era gallows hill and the ghostly legacies of Puritan-era persecution haunt the campus in an increasingly supernatural fashion. The plot examines how each of these women will — or won’t — survive in this space of privilege."
Producing are Andrea Roa, Brad Becker-Parton and Joshua Astrachan through their Brooklyn based film, television and audio company, Animal Kingdom. Hall and Terence Nance will executive produce.
We spoke with Mariama before when her short film Hair Wolf played at the Etheria Film Festival in Los Angeles, and can't wait to see what she does with her first feature. She is a delightfully intelligent director who knows her stuff, displayed by Hair Wolf, which is a brilliant short that you can and should stream right now on Hulu.
