Matt Jackson will also produce

Netflix has acquired the rights to Eric Brown’s short story “Blink Speed,” which will be adapted to film starring and produced by Grammy, Tony and Emmy winning, Academy Award-nominated Cynthia Erivo (“Harriet”). Brown (“Queen Bitch and the High Horse”) is set to adapt the film.

Producers include Erivo and Solome Williams for Edith’s Daughter, and Jackson for Jackson Pictures. Executive producer is Joanne Lee for Jackson Pictures.

After a near-death experience, a young woman is plagued by a rare and mysterious savant ability that may be the key to unlocking the truth behind her fractured memory and past.

Erivo will next be seen in Disney’s “Pinocchio” with Tom Hanks and is currently in production on “Luther” with Idris Elba for Netflix. She is also starring in Apple’s upcoming anthology series “Roar.” This summer, Erivo will begin production on Jon Chu’s “Wicked,” starring as Elphaba opposite Ariana Grande.
