A24 ready to make their first original movie


... and they're teaming up with Cary Fukunaga

It's official! Everybody's favorite film distribution and production company, A24, is finally set to make their first original movie, and they've hired none other than Cary Fukunaga to direct.

The untitled project will be written by Diana Ossana and Larry McMurty - who collaborated on the screenplay for Brokeback Mountain -  and tell the true story of how a father took to the road to promote awareness about the extreme consequences of prejudices in our world. Jadin Bell was a 15-year-old boy who took his own life. The openly gay sophomore had been bullied and struggled to gain acceptance from the people closest to him. This compelled his father, Joe Bell, to take to the road.

While some know the names today, this sounds like a deeply personal and important story that is worth telling.
