Kerry Washington and Rashida Jones are teaming up to bring the story of teen detective Goldie Vance to the big screen
Kerry Washington and Rashida Jones are teaming up on a movie adaptation of graphic novel 'Goldie Vance'.
The 'Fantastic Four' actress and the 'Parks and Recreation' star want to bring to life the story of the teen detective on the big screen, offering a positive role model for young girls.
Kerry, 40, will produce the project with her company Simpson Street, while Rashida, 41, will adapt and direct, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Kerry said in a statement: "I'm ecstatic to be collaborating with Rashida and Boom! Studios on telling this story. Fox is the perfect home for this project. 'Goldie Vance' will steal your heart. She's already stolen mine!"
Rashida added: "Goldie is exactly the kind of fearless, curious and funny heroine we need right now. I'm so honoured to partner with Kerry Washington, Boom! Studios and Fox to bring her world to life."
'Goldie Vance', created by writer Hope Larson - who's also created graphic novels of 'Batgirl' - and artist Brittney Williams, tells the story of a16-year-old girl whose father is the manager of a Miami hotel resort, where she aspires to become the in-house detective.
Kerry recently revealed she is keen to make another comic book movie after starring as Alicia Masters in the 'Fantastic Four' franchise.
She said: "I would definitely be open to doing another superhero movie. My company is actually working right now on a comic book movie that's not a superhero movie, but it is a comic book movie. It's about a teenage girl."
