Moonlight director Barry Jenkins has announced his next project. Barry will be adapting James Baldwin’s novel “If Beale Street Could Talk<” for Annapurna Pictures. Barry has actually wanted to make the movie for a number of years, and wrote the screenplay over the same 2013 summer that he wrote Moonlight.
Barry spoke out about having the opportunity to work on the project.
“James Baldwin is a man of and ahead of his time; his interrogations of the American consciousness have remained relevant to this day. To translate the power of Tish and Fonny’s love to the screen in Baldwin’s image is a dream I’ve long held dear. Working alongside the Baldwin Estate, I’m excited to finally make that dream come true.”
