According to Variety,
“When They See Us” and “This Is Us” actor Asante Blackk is set to star with Tiffany Haddish in MGM & Plan B’s upcoming adaptation of “Landscape With Invisible Hand.”!
Based on National Book Award winner M.T. Anderson’s novel of the same name, Blackk will play Haddish’s son in the pic. The movie, described as a “heightened comedy set in a deeply stratified, alien future,” is written and directed by Cory Finley (“Bad Education,” “Thoroughbreds”).
“Landscape With Invisible Hand” follows a teenage aspiring artist (Blackk) who lives in a near-future in which an alien species known as the vuvv has taken over Earth. After the vuvv’s labor-saving technology causes Earth’s job market and global economy to collapse, the teen and his girlfriend cook up a scheme to make much-needed money by broadcasting their dating life to the fascinated aliens. But the two teens come to hate each other and can’t break up without bankrupting their families.
We just know this is going to be good!
