Tiffany Haddish To Star In ‘Limited Partners’ At Paramount | Film News
Paramount have won a reportedly tough bidding war to secure the rights to the next project which will star arguably the fastest rising actress at the moment, Tiffany Haddish. She will play the lead role in the comedy Limited Partners, which will be directed by Miguel Arteta (The Good Girl) with a screenplay penned by Sam Pitman and Adam Cole-Kelly.
The premise of the film revolves around two girlfriends who build a juggernaut company from scratch, only to find their friendship tested when they are offered a big buyout offer. All the differences that previously made them perfect odd couple partners now puts them at war, threatening both their business and relationships.
The film has been described as Superbad meets Bridesmaids. Haddish will also act as executive producer and has also helped develop the script.
The other studios vying for Haddish had different projects in mind; Warner Bros. pitched Bobby Sue, a comedy film originally developed for Cameron Diaz, while it’s rumoured that Sony offered her some sort of 21 Jump Street sequel/reboot.
However, she ultimately decided on Paramount, and Limited Partners will reportedly begin production in October. Since her breakout in last year’s comedy hit Girls Trip, it’s no surprise that Haddish has signed onto a lot of new projects, including voicing lead character Tuca in Netflix’s upcoming Tuca & Bertie, which comes from BoJack Horseman production designer and producer, Lisa Hanawalt.
She will also appear in The Lego Movie 2, The Secret Life Of Pets 2, currently stars alongside Tracy Morgan in The Last O.G., and will next be seen re-teaming with Girls Trip director Malcolm D. Lee in the comedy Night School, which also stars Kevin Hart and opens on Friday, September 28.
