Willow Smith is helming two new female-driven film and television projects with her production company, MSFTS Productions, Deadline reports.
MSFTS will team with Cartel Entertainment to adapt the young adult trilogy Rebel of the Sands, by Alwyn Hamilton, which follows 17-year-old Amani on an adventure through a mythical desert land. The film adaptation could or could not be a major acting gig for Smith.
The second project picked up by MSFTS/ Cartel is an animated television adaptation of Menencholy, the fantasy novel Smith has reportedly written (though hasn’t published). Menencholy follows a girl named Menen-Nin Khali who has the ability to see into her previous life.
“The nonphysical, creative and, wild nature of a female heroine’s journey calls for a unique narrative structure that permeates the very foundation of the story,” said Smith. “Enjoy the ride!”
As it may be a while before we see any of these projects actualized, here’s Willow shooting a bow and arrow to tide you over:
