Another big deal for the horror genre out of Sundance today, as Deadline reports that Hulu is in the process of acquiring worldwide rights to Dear White People director Justin Simien‘s Bad Hair (read Meagan’s review) for north of $8 million.
Deadline adds, “The deal calls for a global theatrical release with a P&A spend.”
“The horror satire is set in 1989, and an ambitious young woman gets a weave in order to succeed in the image-obsessed world of music television. However, her flourishing career may come at a great cost when she realizes that her new hair may have a mind of its own. Tress terror ensues!”
Elle Lorraine, Vanessa Williams, Jay Pharoah, Lena Waithe, Blair Underwood and Laverne Cox star in the film Meagan called “an off the rails satire that’s guaranteed to be divisive.”
