Deadline reported Friday that the two stars are set to produce and adapt/direct, respectively, a film version of the well-loved graphic novel Goldie Vance, by Eisner award-winning writer Hope Larson and artist Brittney Williams

The word on the street is that Washington and Jones have their eye on the graphic novel series from BOOM!

Set at a historical Miami resort, follows sixteen-year-old Goldie Vance, a mixed race, precocious and highly detail-oriented teenager with ambitions of becoming the hotel’s in-house detective; but getting embroiled in uncovering an international crime ring will challenge her in ways she never imagined.
