black-ish star Marsai Martin’s breakout role is here.
She has been tapped to lead the upcoming film, Little, which is from Will Packer and Kenya Barris.
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.”
Martin’s not just starring in the film either. She came up for the script idea and will executive produce as well.
Drumline writer Tina Gordon wrote the most recent draft of the idea and Girls Trip writer Tracy Oliver wrote the first draft, which are both based on Martin’s idea.
Packer and James Lopez, producers of Girls Trip are producing through Will Packer Productions along with black-ish creator Barris. Girls Trip star Regina Hall and Josh Martin will executive produce with Martin.
Martin has starred in black-ish for all four seasons so far.
