Partners to finance, sell project set in 1940s Atlanta.

Lotus Entertainment, PaperChase Films and financier and executive producer Marco Vicini have teamed up to produce Superman Vs The Kkk.

The project is based on the novel Superman Versus The Ku Klux Klan by Rick Bowers, which was inspired by a true story during the summer of 1946 that the producers describe as The Departed meets Mississippi Burning with a touch of American Hustle.

The story will centre on a klansman who went undercover in Atlanta for the FBI and combined with the efforts of the Anti-Defamation League and the ‘Superman Radio Show’ to take on the Kkk. Katherine Lindberg is adapting from Bowers’s novel.

Newly arrived Lotus producer Marc Rosen, who serves as executive producer on the Wachowskis’ series Sense8, and PaperChase CEO Dillon Jordan negotiated the deal with Lotus vice-president of acquisitions Daniel Brandt.  

PaperChase, Vicini, and Lotus will finance and sell the film.
