Pharrell Producing Thriller ‘Survive The Night’
Pharrell Williams is teaming up with Tracy Oliver, the writer behind the hit Girls Trip, to produce an adaptation of the YA book Survive the Night. The music-themed horror thriller will be written by Oliver, while Williams will produce with Mimi Valdes, his partner at I Am Other Entertainment.
The story follows a group of female college students trapped inside an underground warehouse music festival on Halloween. They must fight for their lives against a mysterious attacker who hunts them down throughout the night.
Williams, Valdes and Oliver previously collaborated on Awkward Black Girl, a YouTube web series that starred Issa Rae.
Williams and Valdes were part of the crew that produced Hidden Figures, the hit drama that told the true story of four black women who were important to NASA’s programs in the 1960s. They also were involved in the Sundance film, Dope.
