TKO Studios is proud to announce that we have partnered with MACRO (whose projects have received nine Oscar nominations and one Oscar win for Viola Davis in FENCES) to produce a film adaptation of our graphic novel ‘THE BANKS’ written by New York Times bestseller Roxane Gay (Hunger, Bad Feminist) and drawn by Ming Doyle (The Kitchen).
Roxane Gay (below), who will write the screenplay of the film and serve as an executive producer on the project said, “I am thrilled to revisit the world of The Banks. Clara, Cora, and Celia Banks are fierce women with compelling stories that will really come alive on the silver screen. I am also excited about partnering with TKO Studios, an amazing publisher to create comics with, and MACRO, a company that is a standard bearer for excellence with the films they make.”
