Tiffany Haddish has signed on to star alongside Tika Sumpter and Omari Hardwick in Tyler Perry’s The List, Perry’s next film which is in the works at Paramount Players. Perry wrote and is directing and producing, and the Paramount label has already set a November 2, 2018 release date.
The pic’s logline: When her wild sister (Haddish) gets released from prison and re-enters her life, Danica (Sumpter) is forced to accept that she may be getting “catfished” by an online boyfriend whom she has never met in person.
Haddish, who was all over the place at the Oscars last night and had one of the show’s best presenter moments with Maya Rudolph, most recently starred in Universal’s Girls Trip, which earned a Critics’ Choice nom this year. She’s been on a roll since, making Saturday Night Live history in November by becoming the first black female stand-up comic to host the show. She also will host the 2018 MTV Movie & TV Awards in June.
