20th Century Studios has acquired the rights to “Darby Harper Wants You To Know.” Storm Reid will star in the film and serve as executive producer.
According to Deadline, the story follows Darby Harper, who after suffering a near-death experience as a child is granted the ability to see ghosts. To combat the existential boredom of high school, she runs a side business counseling local spirits in her spare time. When an unexpected occurrence happens between Darby and Capri, the most popular girl at her high school, Darby reluctantly agrees to help her and in the process learns how to fit in with the living world again.
The spec script was written by Wenonah Wilms and Becca Greene. Silas Howard (Pose) will direct the film.
The movie will be produced by Footprint Features and A Seed & Wings, which was created by Storm Reid and Robyn Simpson.
Reid recently wrapped filming on the sequel to Searching and can be seen next in the second season of HBO’s Euphoria.
“Darby Harper Wants You To Know” is scheduled to begin production in December. A release date for the film has not been announced yet.
