Marsai Martin to Executive Produce and Star in Universal’s ‘Little’

Marsai 1

At just 13 years old, Marsai Martin already deserve a Hollywood Walk of Fame star and she’s just getting started. After stealing everyone’s hearts as Diane Johnson on ABC’s black-ish, fans have been keeping up with the budding starlet’s interviews and red carpet appearances where her purest star quality as a young, hopeful, promising Black actress radiates the most endearing light. Now with Martin spreading her acting wings to make her feature film debut as the star of Universal’s comedy Little, she’s also tasked with behind-the-scenes responsibilities as the film’s Executive Producer.

The original script for Little was written by Girl’s Trip writer Tracy Oliver (based on Marsai’s idea) and follows an woman who escapes the overwhelming load of adulting by reliving her best girlhood. Will Packer and James Lopez (think Girl’s Trip) and black-ish and grown-ish creator Kenya Barris will serve as producers, and Tina Gordon Chism (think Drumline) will direct the film in line with her self-revised script. Regina Hall and Josh Martin will executive produce along with Marsai.

This is such exciting news and we can’t wait to support this and all of Marsai Martin’s future endeavors.
