Issa Rae Lands Major New Gig!
#IssaAnotherWin for Issa Rae!
The Insecure creator/star has just landed her big screen debut. Rae will star opposite Bill Hader in the drama-comedy Empress of Serenity, directed by “Me and Earl and the Dying Girl” author and screenwriter Jesse Andrews. The film centers on a lawyer who’s coerced into taking an ocean cruise in order to bond with his estranged father. Production is planned for August.
According to Variety:
Hader plays a man whose elaborate plan to win back his ex-wife is upended when he is guilted into a month-long mega-cruise with his widowed father. Rae plays a reclusive kindred spirit in the cabin next door who becomes both the aid and the obstacle in his plan.
If Issa’s in it, then we’ll see it!
