Reese Witherspoon and Zendaya are joining forces to tell lies together.
Nope, not Big Little Lies on the small screen, but A White Lie on the big screen.
A White Lie is based on Karin Tanabe’s 2016 novel The Gilded Years and will tell the nonfiction story of Anita Hemmings, the first African-American woman to graduate from Vassar College. Zendaya will star in the film and serve as an executive producer alongside Witherspoon. Monica Beletsky (Fargo) will pen the script.
This isn’t Zendaya’s first time taking on the double role of both actress and executive producer. She produced and starred in two episodes of the Disney Channel’s K.C. Undercover earlier this year.
She’ll have a pretty epic mentor in Witherspoon, though, considering she produced and acted in BLL.
