Haddish is joining the cast of “Night School,” which is based on a story by Hart and centers on a group of oddballs required to take night classes in hopes of passing the GED exam, according to a Thursday, Aug. 17, report from The Hollywood Reporter.
The flick, which will hit the big screen on Sept. 28, 2018, reteams Haddish with “Girls Trip” director Malcolm D. Lee and producer Will Packer; Hart also is producing the film.
It’s been a huge year for Haddish, who won audiences’ hearts and made their stomachs ache from laughter in “Girls Trip.” The film has crossed the $100 million mark, becoming the first comedy to do so in a summer full of dismal movies in the genre.

“Any chance that I get to play a white woman, I am there! I’m Phoebe on there,” Haddish said Tuesday, Aug. 15 on “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.” “I’m a white woman on paper; I’ve been a white woman for the last five, 10 years now.”
