Together with his producer partner Kelly McCormick at 87th North, Leitch is already producing the title story in Nana Kwame Adjei-Brenyah’s New York Times bestseller Friday Black, which Uni optioned the rights to back in February as exclusively reported by Deadline. Adjei-Brenyah is adapting the script for the film and executive produce. No director has been set yet. 87th North also has Ilya Naishuller’s action thriller Nobody set up at Uni with Bob Odenkirk. Leitch delivered the $785M-plus global grossing sequel Deadpool 2 for Fox last summer, and two years ago directed Atomic Blonde for Focus Features.
