Netflix has acquired the rights to Eric Brown’s short story “Blink Speed,” which will be adapted to film starring and produced by two-time Grammy, Tony and Emmy winner and Two-time Academy Award nominee Cynthia Erivo (“Harriet,” “Genius: Aretha”).

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.

Brown (“Queen B*tch and the High Horse”) is set to adapt the film, according to a news release.

Producers include Erivo and Solome Williams for Edith’s Daughter and Matt Jackson for Jackson Pictures
Joanne Lee is executive producing for Jackson Pictures.

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, she will begin production on Jon Chu’s movie adaptation of the smash musical “Wicked.” Erivo will star as Elphaba opposite Ariana Grande as Glinda.
