“Black-ish” star Marsia Martin is truly young force to be reckoned with.
The 13-year-old award-winning actress is set to executive produce and star in her first feature film, Little.
Drumline scripter Tina Gordon has written the most recent draft of the comedy and is attached to direct. Girls Trip screenwriter Tracy Oliver penned the first draft of the screenplay, based on Martin’s idea.
Will Packer and James Lopez, who produced Girls Trip, are set to produce via the Uni-based Will Packer Productions, as will Black-ish creator Kenya Barris. Along with Martin, Girls Trip star Regina Hall will exec produce, as well as Josh Martin.
Erik Baiers and Mika Pryce will oversee the project for the studio.
Marsai took to social media to thank everyone for the outpouring of love and support after the news broke about her new project.
ICC Luh Da Kids…and I truly love me some Marsai Martin!
