Author Angela Thomas originally wrote The Hate U Give as her debut novel, and fter a huge bidding war, Fox 2000 has won the film rights according to Vulture. Our favorite actress-meets-activist Amandla Stenberg has apparently landed the lead role in the forthcoming George Tillman Jr. directed film that will depict the story of #BlackLivesMatter and a 16 year old prep school student who loses her best friend to police brutality.

No word on the release date yet, but we are beyond excited to see the execution of The Hate U Give. Be on the lookout for updates. In the meantime, revisit Solange‘s interview with Amandla for Teen Vogue here!
