“In news I was truly today years old for, Daniel Kaluuya (Get Out, Black Panther, Judas and the Black Messiah, Nope) has confirmed that his production company, 59%, is still working on a Barney movie.

According to an interview with Gerrick Kennedy of The Hollywood Reporter, the project is still in early development with the script being reworked. That… you know what? Sure, why not. Garfield has two live-action films with a new CG animated film in the works where Chris Pratt is the voice of the lasagna-loving cat, and somewhere in the cast is Samuel L. Jackson. So yeah. Barney. Let’s go. Let Kaluuya do something lighthearted – after Nope, of course.”
