Are we really surprised?  Dee Rees, whose debut film Pariah is scheduled to be released later this year has two more reasons to be thankful.  First, she’s been assigned to write a thriller for Focus Features.  You all remember them don’t you? Can you say, Brokeback Mountain?

Focus decided to distribute her film after it received a Sundance Film Festival award for cinematography, as well as being the talk of the town at this year’s festival back in January.   The second thing that Dee has to be thrilled about, and this is really big in this town, is signing with William Morris Entertainment.   HUGE!  Especially since UTA initially signed her right after the festival but, for reasons unknown, they parted ways.  Must be nice, huh?  Getting signed by WME  doesn’t happen often, if at all, for first time, African American LGBT directors.

In case you haven’t heard, Pariah is the coming of age tale of a young black girl who is finding herself in the complicated world of  butch vs. fem.   The film is scheduled for its world premiere later this fall.  Congratulations Dee!  We want an interview!
