With its thought-provoking and timely themes, we know that this story will resonate with a global audience.”

The 28 years old took to her Instagram to announce the good news, she wrote:

It will be produced by Paramount Pictures in collaboration with Marty Bowen of Temple Hill Entertainment, Karen Rosenfelt of Sunswept Entertainment, and Wyck Godfrey.
