(LOS ANGELES) — Academy Award-winning actress Lupita Nyong’o is bringing some laughs to her next project.
According to Deadline, Nyong’o will reteam with her Little Monsters director Abe Forsythe, for an untitled science fiction comedy that has landed at Universal Pictures. Forsythe will both write and direct the project.
Although plot details are currently being kept under wraps, the film is being described as Men In Black meets Miss Congeniality.
This is the latest project for Nyong’o, who recently starred in Jordan Peele’s critically acclaimed horror film Us. Later this year she will be seen in Little Monsters on Hulu.
She’s also producing and starring in an adaptation of Trevor Noah’s memoir, Born A Crime, in which she will play Noah’s mother, Patricia. Lupita is also set to star alongside fellow Oscar winner Viola Davis in The Woman King.
