Sanaa Lathan is gearing up to bring some #BlackGirlMagic to Netflix in a new film titled Nappily Ever After. Deets inside…

Sanaa Lathan, who starred in the limited series “Shots Fired,” just got her next leading role. The modern day woman film, Nappily Ever After, is an adaptation of the best-selling novel with the same name, written by Trisha R. Thomas.

Variety reports:

“The film follows a woman with a seemingly flawless life — a great job, a handsome boyfriend who’s a doctor, and a meticulously maintained coiffure. But after an accident at the hair salon, each of these things starts to unravel, and Violet begins to realize that she was living the life she thought she was supposed to live, not the one that she really wanted.”

This woman’s hair will alter everything in her life as she knows it.  Every black woman knows that life.

Not only is Sanaa starring in the film, she’s also producing it. Director Haifaa Al-Mansour (Wadjda) will helm the film with Marc Platt, Tracey Bing, and Jared Leboff producing alongside the YBF actress.

Nappily Ever After is a passion project for Tracey Bing and she’s the one who brought the project to Netflix. Tracey produced the Barack and Michelle Obama love story film, Southside With You.  Let's hope this one fares a little better.

Production for the film begins this month in Atlanta.
