Get used to the terrible puns like the title above. It’s been announced that DEAR WHITE PEOPLE writer-director Justin Simien has announced his next venture will be titled BAD HAIR. According to Deadline, the film “Bad Hair is a horror satire that follows an ambitious young woman who gets a weave in order to survive the image obsessed world of music television. Her professional success comes at a higher cost than anticipated, however, when she discovers her new hair may have a mind of its own.”
I’m so excited for this! DEAR WHITE PEOPLE and it’s Netflix spinoff were both welcome surprises and displayed Simien’s voice for social satire. It also makes me excited to have another Queer director lending their voice in the horror (-comedy) community. According to Simien, “this will be both a love letter to black women and a critique of the cultural forces our society puts them through.”
No filming or production date has been announced yet, however you can stay in the loop at the film’s website, www.snatchedattheroot.com.
