Taraji P. Henson is on fire!

Fresh off of the success of Hidden Figures, which topped the box office with $22.8 million, the “Empire” star has already signed on to star in Screen Gems’ Proud Mary.

In the film, Henson will play a hit woman whose life is turned completely around when she meets a young boy who awakens in her a maternal instinct she never knew she had.

Production is set to begin in April in Boston.

Congratulations to Taraji!
