Insecure Actress, Yvonne Orji has enrolled in Kevin Hart’s upcoming comedy movie, Night School.
She will join Hart and Tiffany Haddish in the movie directed by Malcolm D. Lee of Girls Trip.
Based on a story by Hart, Night School is set around a group of misfits who are forced to attend adult classes in the longshot chance that they’ll pass the GED exam. The script was written by Hart, Harry Ratchford, Joey Wells and Matt Kellard, with additional work by Nick Stoller.
Hart will produce for his Hartbeat Productions along with Will Packer via his Will Packer Productions. James Lopez, head of motion pictures for Will Packer Productions, will executive produce. Senior Vice President of Production Kristin Lowe will oversee production for Universal. The movie is set to open on September 28, 2018.
Night School marks Orji’s feature film debut. In addition to her breakout role as Molly in HBO’s Insecure, she is also the creator and star of First Gen a semi-autobiographical comedy which has David Oyelowo and Oprah Winfrey attached as executive producers. The series centers on Joanna (Orji), a first generation Nigerian-American who trades in a stable career in medicine for a career in stand up comedy.
Recall that Orji recently announced that she was a virgin and hoped to remain so until she gets married, despite the crude roles she has had to play on the screen.
