I am so excited for this. Amazon has some awesome stuff lined up. This sounds great. I havnt heard of the book but it sounds so inventive. Moonlight was my second favorite movie of 2016 so I am glad to see Jenkins busy working.
Amazon is killing it on paper, but we’ll see if these film auteurs can successfully transfer the same quality to long form storytelling. Still, David O. Russell, Nicholas Refn, Barry Jenkins, Matthew Weiner, Neil Gaiman…those are some very talented people.
Very ambitious next act for Barry Jenkins! Kind of surprise he’s going to television, and he’ll have to contend with “Underground” already on the market. This might be what finally gets me to purchase Amazon Prime outright.
