Mike Colter And Larenz Tate Land In New Queen Latifah, Jada Pinkett Smith’s Comedy ‘Girl Trip’

Hollywood, Hollywood News

Mike Colter and Larenz Tate have joined the cast of Universal Pictures’ comedy “Girl Trip” opposite Queen Latifah, Jada Pinkett Smith and Regina Hall.

Malcolm D. Lee is directing from a script by Kenya Barris and Tracy Oliver about four lifelong friends who travel to New Orleans for the annual Essence Festival, where sisterhoods are rekindled, wild sides are rediscovered, and there’s enough dancing, drinking, brawling and romancing to make the Big Easy blush.

“Girl Trip” will hit theaters on July 21, 2017.

Will Packer will produce via his Will Packer Productions banner. Packer’s credits include the “Ride Along” and “Think Like a Man” franchises, along with “No Good Deed” “Takers” and “Obsessed.” He was an executive producer on Universal’s “Straight Outta Compton.”

James Lopez, head of motion pictures for Will Packer Productions, will executive produce.

Lee directed the “The Best Man Holiday” and “Barbershop: The Next Cut.” Barris is the creator of “Black-ish” and is currently adapting the 70’s show “Good Times” as a movie.

Packer set up “Girl Trip” a year ago. VP of Production Sara Scott is overseeing the project for Universal.

Colter — represented by WME — stars in the Netflix series “Luke Cage.” Tate — repped by Paradigm — toplined NBC’s “Game of Silence.”
