“FLYY GIRL” (Drama, Film)
Starring SANAA LATHAN and currently in development with Lionsgate’s Codeblack Films, “FLYY GIRL” is a movie based on Omar Tyree’s books ‘Flyy Girl,’ ‘For the Love of Money,’ and ‘Boss Lady.’
The film is being adapted by the Oscar winning screenwriter of “Precious,” Geoffrey Fletcher.
Omar Tyree, the NY Times best-selling author and 2001 NAACP Image Award Recipient for Outstanding Literary Work in Fiction, has been read by over 8 million people worldwide, and generated over $30 million in revenue for publishing giant Simon and Schuster.
FLYY GIRL burst onto the scene worldwide in the mid 1990’s, as it was the first novel to explore the journey of a middle-class African American little girl as she blossoms into a young lady. Through the pain, confusion and longing of the one thing we all seek; love, FLYY GIRL could be any young girl’s story, anywhere in the world. It became the diary, the nightmare, and the fantasy, all at the same time, speaking for a whole generation of women.
‘Flyy Girl’ is being adapted to meet the emerging $90 billion ‘Verge Culture,’ a multi-cultural mash-up of tastes and flavors reflecting the diversity of our modern world. The soundtracks/scores for “FLYY GIRL” are positioned to make cultural impacts as well, featuring some of the hottest artists from around the world in Pop, Hip Hop, Soul, R&B and Dance.
The film and soundtrack will promote the idea that a woman can be sexy while strong, independent, intelligent… and FIERCE. A portion of profits will benefit not-for-profit endeavors that promote girls’ education and women’s economic empowerment via Arthur Wylie Foundation/Project:NOW and Cherokee Gives Back.
