In a report, detailing the film’s premise, the publication states: “If 1% of the world’s children were born with powerful gifts, how would society adapt to them? The Brilliance novel trilogy is set in a future where non-neurotypical people – demonized by society as “twists” or “abnorms” – threaten the status quo of the “normal” population with their unique gifts.”
Speaking of Obaid-Chinoy, she is best known for her directing Save face and a girl in the river, the price of forgiveness and most recently Mrs. Marvel. Meanwhile, Smith will be the next star in Emancipation. In the upcoming Apple movie, the star will appear as a hunted runaway enslaved man struggling for freedom in the perilous swamps of Louisiana. Directed by Antoine Fuqua, the fact-based thriller’s release date has yet to be announced.
