Filmmaker Reginald Hudlin is all set to helm a feature adaptation of the graphic novel Black Cotton Star for ZQ Entertainment.
The film will have a script by Deric Hughes and Benjamin Raab, who are known for their work on Arrow, The Flash and Warehouse 13. The graphic novel follows three African American soldiers in WWII who are dispatched on a suicide mission to retrieve the first-ever American flag, stolen by a sadistic Nazi commander.
Written by Yves Sente and illustrated by Steve Cuzor, the graphic novel was originally published by the Belgian publisher Dupuis, part of the French-Belgian Company Media Participations. It is published in the US by Pegasus Book and digitally by Europe Comics.
Hudlin will also produce with Prime Universe’s Adrian Askarieh, and ZQ heads Ara Keshishian and Petr Jakl. Author Sente and illustrator Cuzor will also executive produce, apart from Martin J Barab.
