Karrueche Tran cast in upcoming high school comedy film executive produced by Zoe Saldana

Claws star Karrueche Tran has been casting an upcoming film from Lionsgate Digital Studios and Popsugar Films, executive produced by Zoe Saldana and her sisters Cisely and Mariel.

Tran is co-starring with Meghan Rienks, Sasha Pietrse and Arden Cho.

Honored‘s description reads: “At the start of high school, Piper, Sophie, Isabella and Honor think they will be best friends forever, so they sink a time capsule in the lake with a list of things they want to do before graduation. But a big falling out causes them to grow in different directions with hobbies, cliques, and social status, to the point where it’s like their 14 years of friendship never happened. By senior year, Piper (Rienks) has turned into the class clown/party girl. Sophie (Tran) pledges to stay a virgin until she’s married and has created a purity app. Isabella (Pieterse) is the feminist femme fatale who’s the editor of a zine, and Honor (Cho) is the pride and joy of the community. Honor’s dream of being a professional ballerina is taking off, but when tragedy strikes, the former BFFs must reunite and do all the things on the list they made in eighth grade. From jailbreaking the school mascot, Mo the goat, to getting back at some bitchy cheerleaders by disrupting halftime, the list forces them to face up to the real reasons for their falling out as they navigate body shaming, sex, and the party culture in high school. Through laughter, tears, and looking life and death right in the eye, they rediscover their friendship and learn to live life to the fullest every moment, even if it means saying good-bye forever to someone they love.”

Honored will be executive produced by Untitled Entertainment’s Kendall Rhodes and Jason Newman and Zoe, Cisely and Mariel Saldana’s Cinestar Pictures in association with Popsugar Films.

“It’s gratifying to be in the company of so many talented women on this project, another sign of female empowerment rising in Hollywood. For me, it’s also very exciting to step into an executive producer role with my sisters and Cinestar co founders Cisely and Mariel in our first feature film with Lionsgate and POPSUGAR,” says Zoe.

The film starts production in Los Angeles this week.
