Deadline is reporting that Tiffany Haddish is set to star alongside Tika Sumpter and Omari Hardwick in Tyler Perry’s The List for Paramount Players.
Perry wrote and is directing and producing, and the Paramount label has already set a November 2, 2018 release date.
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 most recently starred in Universal’s Girls Trip, which earned a Critics’ Choice nom this year. In 2017, while appearing on Saturday Night Live, she made 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.
Haddish is also set to star opposite Tracy Morgan in the TBS sitcom The Last OG, and alongside Kevin Hart in Universal’s Night School, which hits theaters in September. She and Perry reteam from his OWN series If Loving You Is Wrong, on which she appeared during the 2014-2015 season. Haddish and Melissa McCarthy are set to star in The Kitchen, a female-focused drama based on the 2014 comic book series by Ollie Masters and Ming Doyle for DC’s Vertigo.
Paramount Players has been expanding its slate since AwesomenessTV founder Brian Robbins came aboard in June 2017. Devoted to producing films derived from the Viacom flagship brands, it has in the pipeline What Men Want starring Taraji P. Henson; Action Man, based on the Hasbro toy line; the horror pic Eli; a Dora the Explorer movie; and a 48 Hrs redo.
