Comedy News

Luke James and Tone Bell are in talks to join Universal‘s upcoming comedy film, Little.

The two, along with This Is Us star Justin Hartley, Rachel Dratch and Mikey Day were announced Friday.

They join the Marsai Martin-toplined film, which also has confirmed Issa Rae, Regina Hall and JD McCrary.

The Universal 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 came up with the script idea and will executive produce. Fresh off the Boat writer Camilla Blackett wrote the most recent version of the script, which had earlier drafts written by Drumline writer Tina Gordon and Girls Trip writer Tracy Oliver. Oliver wrote the first draft, and all versions are based on Martin’s idea. Gordon is the director.

Will Packer and James Lopez, producers of Girls Trip, are producing through Will Packer Productions along with Black-ish creator Kenya Barris. Josh Martin executive produces alongside Hall, who also executive produces.

R&B singer James has a breakout acting career in progress, beginning with The New Edition Story miniseries on BET. He is currently a series regular on Fox’s Star and appeared in USA’s Unsolved: The Murders of Tupac and the Notorious B.I.G. 

Most known for his work as a comedian, Bell has starred in Netflix’s Disjointed and will co-lead the CBS comedy, Fam next year.
