Tiffany Haddish will star with Tika Sumpter and Omari Hardwick in Tyler Perry's comedy “The List.” Perry is directing from his own script and producing. Paramount Players has already set a November 2 release date for the film.
Haddish will portray a wild woman who gets released from prison and reunites with her sister, played by Sumpter. Sumpter's character is in an online relationship with a man that may be “catfishing” her.
Haddish stole the show while presenting at the Academy Awards on Sunday night. She most recently starred in Universal's “Girls Trip” and hosted “Saturday Night Live” in November. She will host the MTV Movie & TV Awards in June and star with Kevin Hart in Universal's “Night School,” which will hit theaters on September 14.
Paramount Pictures launched Paramount Players in June, with veteran producer and executive Brian Robbins in charge.
Viacom president-CEO Bob Bakish unveiled details of “The List” on Monday at the Deutsche Bank Media, Telecom and Business Services Conference in Palm Beach, Florida.
