Tiffany Haddish is swiftly becoming a Hollywood staple thanks to her uproariously hilarious turn in “Girls Trip” and none other than Kevin Hart has taken notice.

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.

Haddish’s big-time news comes after her viral appearance in Jay-Z’s “Moonlight” music video, a parody of “Friends,” which she said was a no-brainer to be a part of.

“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.”
