The Lionsgate subsidiary has acquired the rights to Omar Tyree’s coming-of-age trilogy bestseller.
Flyy Girl is set in the contemporary world of hip-hop as a young woman throws herself into a life of sex, violence and heartbreak in an attempt to find herself.
Codeblack general manager Quincy Newell brokered the deal with Global Renaissance Entertainment Group CEO Arthur Wylie and COO Dale Godboldo.
“Omar Tyree has created a franchise with an incredible story that connects with audiences worldwide,” said Codeblack Films president Jeff Clanagan.
“I couldn’t be happier to embark on this journey with Codeblack Films and Global Renaissance Entertainment Group,” said Tyree. “I have every confidence that my brand has found the perfect home with one of the most effective machines in Hollywood.”
Codeblack recently collaborated with Summit Entertainment and Hartbeat Productions on the release of Kevin Hart: Let Me Explain.
