Regina Hall Joins Marsai Martin And Issa Rae In Upcoming Film, 'Little'

Regina Hall is the latest to join the Marsai Martin-toplined film Little. 

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."

Hall, who was already on board as an executive producer, joins the previously-announced Issa Rae in the cast.

Hall and Rae's roles are not known yet, but we can assume that one will play the older version of Martin.

Coincidentally, Hall and Rae also star together in the film adaptation of the BLM YA novel The Hate U Give. 

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. Josh Martin executive produces alongside Hall, who will also executive produce.

Little will be in theaters September 20, 2019.

THR first reported Hall's casting.
