According to Deadline,
Paul Feig (Bridesmaids) and Tiffany Haddish (Girls Trip) are set to produce musical dance dramedy Throw It Back, which MadRiver and CAA Media Finance will be launching at the virtual Cannesmarket.
Haddish will take a supporting role in the hot package, which will star “Us” actress Shahadi Wright Joseph. The ascending teenage actress voiced young Nala in the 2019 Disney juggernaut “Lion King” and also stars in Amazon’s horror series Them.
Throw It Back follows Wytrell, a high school senior who has never stood out from the crowd. After a controversial superstar Miami rapper decides to feature the renowned dance team from her high school in his latest music video, it throws the school into chaos, and Wytrell battles for a spot on the squad and her final chance to be in the spotlight. The film is a dance-filled musical dramedy set to a soundtrack of southern hip hop and HBCU collegiate band rhythms.
I just know this movie is going to be a classic!
