Universal has released a first look at its female-led comedy pic Girls Trip starring Queen Latifah, Jada Pinkett Smith, Regina Hall and Tiffany Haddish. The Best Man Holiday helmer Malcolm D. Lee is directing from a script co-written by Black-ish scribe Kenya Barris and Tracy Oliver. It’s a Will Packer Production flick with James Lopez, Packer’s head of motion pictures, exec producing.
Slated for release July 21, the R-rated film follows four friends as they embark on a trip to New Orleans for the annual Essence Festival, where sisterhoods are rekindled, wild sides are rediscovered, with some romancing, brawling and “white girl-wasted” antics. From the trailer it looks like it has the main ingredients of a Packer film with a great cast and quips like, “It smells like Hennessy and booty sweat up in here.”
