Actor-comic Tiffany Haddish is in final negotiations to act in a large-screen adaptation of Landscape Invisible Hand.
The film is based on the novel of the same name by National Book Award winner MT Anderson, who reported Deadline.
Corey Finale, director of the Emmy-winning feature drama Bad Education, is writing and helming the sci-fi picture.
The Invisible Hand with Landscape depicts the near future in which an alien species, known as vuv, has taken over the Earth.
Plan B and Annapurna Pictures developed the rights to the book together in 2017 and brought the project to MGM Studios.
Hadish’s breakthrough role came with the comedy film Girls Trip, which released in 2017.
She has earned an Emmy as a host on Saturday Night Live and her Netflix special Black Mitzvah has received Emmy and Grammy nominations.
