Latifah, Pinkett-Smith Go On A “Girl Trip”

Twenty years after working together in F. Gary Gray’s “Set It Off,” Queen Latifah and Jada Pinkett Smith are near deals to re-team on “Girl Trip” at Universal Pictures.

The story focuses on four friends who travel to New Orleans for the annual Essence Festival, where sisterhoods are rekindled, wild sides are rediscovered, with some drinking, romancing and even brawling thrown in for good measure.

Malcolm Lee (“The Best Man Holiday”) directs and Will Packer produces the film which also stars Regina Hall. “Black-ish” creator Kenya Barris and Tracy Oliver penned the script with a July 21st 2017 release being targeted.
