The flick has just been acquired by HBO Max, Deadline reports.

The story written by @kayoyegun and developed with Sumpter, follows an African-American female med student as she finds herself in a “timely psychological thriller premise in the tradition of Get Out.” The spec script was reportedly the subject of a heated bidding war amongst various suitors with the fresh streaming service acquiring the script for high six figures.
