'Work It': Keiynan Lonsdale Tapped For Alicia Keys-Produced Dance Comedy From STX

May 02 2019

Keiynan Lonsdale will co-star in the Alicia Keys-produced STX dance comedy flick, Work It. 

The project was first announced by Keys at CinemaCon. Singer-actress Sabrina Carpenter, who appeared in last year's critically-acclaimed The Hate U Give will topline the film. She's joined by Lonsdale and Liza Koshy.

It is directed by Laura Terruso, who is rewriting the script from Allison Peck.

The description: Work It is a coming of age comedy which follows an awkward teenage girl (Carpenter) who after being rejected from her high school’s dance team, assembles a crew of bold and fearless misfits to compete against them in a natural dance championship

Lonsdale, who starred in The CW's DC Comics shows The Flash and Legends of Tomorrow from 2015-2018, last appeared on the big screen in Greg Berlanti's Love, Simon in 2018.

Deadline first reported the news of Lonsdale's casting.
