20th Century Studios selects 25-year-old Nigerian to write, direct Hollywood movie

A Nigerian script writer, Stanley Kalu has been selected by the American entertainment giant, 20th Century Studios to write and direct a Hollywood movie from Matthew Tobin Anderson’s seminal novel, Feed.

The movie which mirrors a dystopian love story will be produced by Zachary Green to mark Kalu’s feature-directional debut.

According to The Hollywood on Friday, Feed is one of the most acclaimed YA novels from the past two decades getting the movie treatment.

Kalu is a trained filmmaker who recently graduated from the University of Southern California and shares his time between Nigeria and Los Angeles, the United States.

He came to the limelight after winning The Launch: Million Dollar Screenplay Competition and having his script, The Obituary of Tunde Johnson, turned into a low-budget drama that premiered at the Toronto Film Festival in 2019 and opened the 2019 Austin Film Festival, and won the Audience Award for debut narrative feature at OutFest 2020.

It received a theatrical and PVOD release in 2021 and garnered a 2022 GLAAD Media Awards nomination for an outstanding film — limited release.

Kalu recently wrote the Kenya Barris-produced sci-fi action project One Night in Compton for Paramount Players.

Anderson’s Feed, which Kalu prepares to write and direct as a film, has been recently named one of Time magazine’s 100 Best YA Books of All Time.

It is set in a future dystopian America, where internet connections feed directly into the consumer’s brain. The plot centers on the unfolding love story between Titus Gray, an average kid on a weekend trip to the moon, and Violet Durn, a brainy girl who has decided to try to fight the feed.

“The 2002 novel presciently tackled ideas of consumerism run amok, data mining and American decay. It became a 2002 National Book Award finalist and received a 2003 honor from the Boston Globe-Horn Book Awards for Fiction.

“Some quarters consider the book dangerous, and it made the American Library Association’s list of 100 most frequently banned and challenged books every year from 2010 to 2019.

Feed will be directed and produced via Kalu and Green’s newly launched Bantu Inc. banner, whose mission is to produce socially relevant films from diverse filmmakers, to create impactful social change through the medium of film and television,” The Hollywood said.

He is now a "Nigerian man" because it's linked to a good news. If it was otherwise they'll term it "Southeasterner". Shame!

Pls kindly feature the adversity befalling your country in it. The people's predicament, untold hardship and the danger that comes with impelling alacrity if they vote the wrong personality come 2023.


If you can add this aforementioned to your storyline, it will help any country especially the Africans against towing the red line.
