She also wrote Amazon’s Hunters, HBO’s Run and is set to write for the upcoming television movie adaptation of the science fiction novel Binti; which stars a young girl named Binti who is a Himba tribe member that gets recruited into a prestigious intergalactic University. The school is then taken hostage by an alien race called the Meduse and almost every member on board is killed. Binti must figure out a way to survive the hostile Meduse and prevent further bloodshed.

There was reports on a six-month search in which black writers were considered, (including direct input from the lead star, Mahershala Ali) resulting in Ossei-Kuffour becoming the film’s writer. She will be Marvel’s first black woman to write a Marvel movie. This upcoming movie will not continue the Wesley Snipes trilogy and will serve as a reboot.
