EXCLUSIVE: Tiffany Haddish Joins Kevin Hart in ‘Night School’

On the heels of the comedy Girls Trip crossing $100 million at the domestic box office, its breakout star Tiffany Haddish has joined the cast of Universal’s comedy Night School starring Kevin Hart. The Hartbeat Productions and Will Packer Productions comedy follows a group of misfits who are forced to attend adult classes in the long-shot chance they’ll pass the GED exam.

The new project will see Haddish reunite with Universal, Girls Trip director Malcolm D. Lee and producer Will Packer. Packer will produce for his Will Packer Productions alongside Hart, who will produce via his Hartbeat Productions banner. James Lopez, head of motion pictures for Will Packer Productions, will executive produce.

The film is set for a Sept. 28, 2018, release.

Based on a story by Hart, Night School was written by Hart, Harry Ratchford, Joey Wells and Matt Kellard, with additional script work by Nick Stoller.

Haddish rocketed to fame earlier this month with her comedic breakout performance in the Universal hit Girls Trip alongside Regina Hall, Queen Latifah and Jada Pinkett Smith. She is releasing her first stand-up special, Tiffany Haddish: She Ready! From The Hood to Hollywood, on Showtime on Friday. Haddish will next be seen in the upcoming TBS series The Last O.G. starring opposite Tracy Morgan.
