Sam Esmail, creator of the Mr. Robot series, will write and direct an adaptation of Rumaan Alam’s novel Leave the World Behind for Netflix. Deadline now brings word that Mahershala Ali and Julia Roberts have signed on to star. The film is described as an accounting of “a long weekend gone terribly wrong” that forces two families together in an exploration of parenting, race, and class. For me, this is right up my alley. No word yet on when the film will enter production.
