“Hello beautiful people ❤️❤️❤️

“I HAVE SOME BREAKING NEWS TO SHARE WITH YOU!!!

“EbonyLife Studios is partnering with Will Packer Productions to develop an untitled project based on the Bloomberg article “The Fall of the Billionaire Gucci Master” by Evan Ratliff.

“When the Hushpuppi story made headlines last year, I pitched the story idea to @willpowerpacker and James Lopez. They bought the idea and as headlined in this press release, together we won the rights to the Bloomberg article by Evan Ratliff mentioned above. The rights were won after a highly contested derby by several producers and is now set up at Universal Pictures. The globetrotting action thriller project is said to be a hybrid of CATCH ME IF YOU CAN and USUAL SUSPECTS.

“It’s a dream come true to be working with WIll Packer Productions and Universal Pictures on this project 😊😊😊

Just as a refresher, Will Packer Productions and Universal Pictures need no introductions. WPP has released a number of blockbusters that include …… ‘‘Girls Trip”, “Think Like a Man Too”, “Ride Along”, “Think Like a Man”, “Takers”, “Obsessed”, “Breaking In” and “Stomp the Yard” and Universal Pictures with over a 100 years in the business of movie making in Hollywood, have produced some of the biggest titles in the world.

“I cannot contain my excitement 💃💃💃”

Abudu noted the importance of telling this kinds of story with a Nigerian pedigree and hopes it serves as a cautionary tale for others who now live in the same environment and under the same circumstances Hushpupi found himself.
