It was announced Tuesday afternoon that King had been tapped to direct “Bitter Root,” a film adaptation of the Harlem Renaissance-set comic book series.

Along with directing, she will produce the movie alongside Ryan Coogler, Zinzi Coogler and Sev Ohanian.

Set during the vibrant Harlem Renaissance of 1924, “Bitter Root” follows a fractured family of once-great monster hunters who face an unimaginable evil that descends upon New York City. For generations, the Sangeryes have hunted and cured those infected by a supernatural force that feeds off the prejudice of the era, transforming humans into monsters. With most of the kin dead, the surviving Sangeryes have the unenviable choice to save or kill the creatures in hopes of thwarting an invasion.

“I would say that Cadillac’s tagline of “Never Stop Arriving” is definitely symbolic to me and is, in a way, a mantra for me, King shared. If you’ve achieved something, that achievement is just like a little piece to inspire you to want to do the next thing. Not that I’m not appreciating or taking time to take in the moments when they’re happening, but it definitely encourages me and reminds me that I am capable of going beyond the moment.”
