Sony Pictures have snared the rights to Max Brooks’ upcoming graphic novel “The Harem Hellfighters”, according to Deadline.

The project was acquired by and is being spearheaded by Michael De Luca, Sony’s new production president, who has been at the studio less than a week. Caleeb Pinkett and James Lassister will produce for Overbrook Entertainment.

Brooks (“World War Z”) will also adapt the script.

Here’s Amazon‘s description of the novel :

In 1919, the 369th infantry regiment marched triumphantly home from World War 1. They had spent more time in combat than any other American unit, never losing a foot of ground to the enemy, or a man to capture, and winning countless decorations. Though they returned as heroes, this African American unit faced tremendous discrimination, even from their own government. The Harlem Hellfighters, as the Germans called them, fought courageously on—and off—the battlefield to make Europe, and America, safe for democracy.
