By now, we’ve all noticed the Flyy Girl memes and posts circulating around social media. Omar Tyree recently took to his Instagram to announce that he wants to bring his classic hit novel, “Flyy Girl” to the movie screen.
Omar Tyree took the first steps in making this happen, by releasing an original screenplay for the movie based off the hit book. He notes via Instagram that,
“The screenplay is NOT the same as the book. The screenplay is the exact script and character lines that we will shoot for the movie, not the 400-page book. Supporting the SCREENPLAY allows our investors to know that we are indeed READY for the big budget, Hollywood treatment RIGHT NOW.”
Since his announcement, Tyree has been doing interviews and speaking engagements trying to spread the word about the screenplay and the movie.
Omar Tyree recently chatted with the ladies of Angela Yee’s Lip Service Podcast.
