Hank Woon wrote the original screenplay with additional revisions by both Woon and Fredrica Bailey.
Lee will produce with Lloyd Levin and Beatriz Levin, both of whom worked with Lee on his Netflix feature Da 5 Bloods and originally optioned the screenplay from Woon.
Bristol, repped by UTA and Ellipsis Entertainment Group, worked with Netflix on his first feature, the sci-fi title See You Yesterday, which earned an Independent Spirit award for best first screenplay.
Woon is repped by APA.
