Master of None’s Lena Waithe and Get Out’s Daniel Kaluuya will team up for a new film titled Queen & Slim, which seeks to explore “America’s social and political climate through the lens of a genre-defying love story,” according to Variety.
The project’s script was written by Waithe and will also feature another Master of None alum, Melina Matsoukas. Queen & Slim will be Matsoukas’ first feature film as director. James Frey, author of A Million Little Pieces, came up with the idea/treatment and Waithe wrote the script based upon it.
