Issa Rae has been the second cast member to join Little at Universal.
The film “centers on a woman who gets the chance to relive the carefree life as her younger self (Martin) when the pressures of adulthood become too much.”
While it wasn’t announced what role she will be playing, if we took a guess, you can probably bet that she will play the older version of Martin’s character.
Martin came up with the script idea and will executive produce. Fresh off the Boat writer Camilla Blackett wrote the most recent version of the script, which had earlier drafts written by Drumline writer Tina Gordon and Girls Trip writer Tracy Oliver. Oliver wrote the first draft, and all versions are based on Martin’s idea. Gordon is the director.
Will Packer and James Lopez, producers of Girls Trip are producing through Will Packer Productions along with black-ish creator Kenya Barris. Girls Trip star Regina Hall and Josh Martin will also executive produce.
Little will be in theaters September 20, 2019.
