Angela Robinson is reuniting with the undead. The “True Blood” alumna, who most lately wrote and directed 2017’s “Professor Marston & the Marvel Girls,” is about to deal with one other vampire story: she’s in “ultimate talks” to direct Warner Bros.’ remake of “The Starvation.” Deadline broke the news.
Launched in 1983, the unique movie depicted a love triangle between a vampire (Catherine Deneuve), the cellist she sires (David Bowie), and a human gerontologist (Susan Sarandon). The erotic horror pic premiered at Cannes.
Jessica Sharzer (“A Easy Favor”) is writing the remake.
Robinson made her characteristic directorial debut with 2004’s “D.E.B.S.” and adopted it up with 2005’s “Herbie Absolutely Loaded.” She served as a author, director, and exec producer on HBO vampire cleaning soap “True Blood.” “Tips on how to Get Away with Homicide” and “The L Phrase” are amongst her small display screen credit.
Final 12 months it was introduced that Robinson would breathe new life into one other traditional title: “Flashdance.” She’s engaged on an up to date take of the 1983 dance pic for Paramount+. The potential collection follows a younger Black girl with ballet goals.
Robinson is an exec producer on “Passing,” the directorial debut of “Professor Marston & the Marvel Girls” star Rebecca Corridor. An adaptation of Nella Larsen’s novel of the identical title, “Passing” sees two outdated mates (Tessa Thompson and Ruth Negga) reuniting in 1920s New York. Each light-skinned Black girls can “cross” as white, and one in every of them has chosen to dwell as white. Netflix landed worldwide rights to the interval drama for a reported $15.75 million following its world premiere at Sundance Movie Competition this 12 months.
