Sanaa Lathan has been cast to star in the Netflix original film Nappily Ever After, an adaptation of the best-selling novel of the same name by Trisha R. Thomas.

Ernie Hudson also has been cast of the film.

Nappily Ever After centers on Violet Jones (Lathan), who has a seemingly flawless life until an accident at the hair dresser causes things in her life to unravel and she begins to realize that she was living the life she thought she was supposed to live, not the one that she really wanted. She starts to put the pieces back together with a little help from a soulful barber and his young daughter. Violet finds the courage to cast off some of the things that she didn’t really need, starting with the perfectly straightened hair, and find a life that has real meaning.

Hudson portrays Lathan’s father, Richard, who makes big change in his life to become a male model. Tina Chism drafted the script with rewrites from Lisa Loomer, Adam Brooks and most recently filmmaker Gina Prince-Bythewood.

Directing the film will be Haifaa Al-Mansour, who made her feature directorial debut with “Wadjda.” “Wadjda” was nominated for best foreign language film at the 2014 BAFTAs.
