Update (2/13): Melissa McCarthy has been tapped to co-star with Haddish. The third female lead is still left to be cast.
Tiffany Haddish is BUSY.
The Girls Trip breakout is already starring in the comedy series The Last O.G. (set for TBS in January), she’s starring in Kevin Hart’s upcoming film Night School, as well as a female-driven comedy film, Limited Partners set at Paramount.
Now, multiple industry publications are reporting that she has two more films in the works, one at New Line Cinema and one at Paramount.
One is called The Kitchen, and the other is called The Temp.
The Kitchen is based on the Vertigo/DC Entertainment comic of the same name and centers on the wives of Irish mobsters who take over their husband’s businesses after they are arrested by the FBI. It is set in the 1970s, and the wives begin running the business in an even more intimidating manner than their husbands. The Kitchen is the feature directorial debut of Andrea Berloff (Straight Outta Compton).
From Dana Fox, The Temp, said to be a “female-driven” comedy like Limited Partners, is produced by Will Packer and James Lopez. Haddish will also be an executive producer on this. No plot details are available on this yet.
