Fresh off her debut Saturday Night Live hosting stint, actress/comedian Tiffany Haddish is taking her talents to the comic book movie world.
She has booked a lead role in The Kitchen. The movie is an adaptation of the Vertigo comic by Ollie Masters and artist Ming Doyle.
The Irish mafia story is set in Hell’s Kitchen, N.Y., in the 1970s. When the FBI comes in and does a sweep of the mob, several men are arrested. Their wives end up taking over and running the business much more viciously than the men ever did.
Straight Outta Compton screenwriter Andrea Berlof is writing and directing.
Haddish is also set to star in the Kevin Hart film Night School and female-led comedy The Temp.
The actress received high praise for her breakout role in this summer’s Girls Trip.
