“How to Get Away with Murder” star Aja Naomi King has joined the cast of The Weinstein Company film, Untouchable.
She will star alongside Kevin Hart, Bryan Cranston, Nicole Kidman, and Genevieve Angelson in the remake of the smash 2011 French film, The Intouchables.
Based on a true story, the film is about a friendship that begins when two unlikely lives intersect: quadriplegic millionaire Philip (Cranston) takes on Dell (Hart) as his caregiver, and the two form an unusual bond. King will play Latrice, the mother of Dell’s son. Upset by Dell’s unwillingness to hold onto a job or stay out of trouble, she is later surprised and wary when he starts giving her his sizable paychecks.
Jon Hartmere penned the script for the film, which is produced by Todd Black, Jason Blumenthal and Steve Tisch. The exec producers are Harvey Weinstein, Bob Weinstein and G. Mac Brown.
Good for Aja!
