Written by on May 3, 2024

Keke Palmer and Sza are set to star in a new buddy comedy produced by Issa Rae. The film, under TriStar Pictures and backed by Rae’s HOORAE Media, emerges from a collaboration between ColorCreative and Columbia Pictures, known as the CoCre lab, which focuses on nurturing diverse screenwriting talents. The pairing of Palmer and Sza came about following their appearances on “Saturday Night Live” in 2022, sparking the idea for this comedic venture. This film marks Sza’s official acting debut, though she previously appeared in a parody during the fourth season of “Insecure.” The project will be directed by Lawrence Lamont with a screenplay by Syreeta Singleton, and involves financial and production support from Palmer’s Big Boss Productions and Macro Film Studios. This development hints at a bustling career move for Palmer, who is also reportedly drawing attention from the Marvel Universe.
