Zendaya to star in movie A White Lie

Zendaya to star in movie A White Lie Zendaya to star in movie A White Lie

Zendaya is set to produce and star in the upcoming thriller A White Lie, as the first African-American woman to graduate from Vassar College. Now, Zendaya is adding to the girl power by collaborating with Witherspoon as a co-producer on an unbelievable new film-and she'll star in it, too. The movie's based on the Karin Tanabe novel The Gilded Years and centers on a light-skinned Black woman named Anita Hemmings (who will be played by-wait for it-Zendaya).

Even while she tried to distance herself from classmates, Anita eventually found herself rooming with Louise "Lottie" Taylor, the scion of one of New York's most prominent families. Monica Beletsky (producer for TV's FARGO and PARENTHOOD) will pen the script.

Zendaya will also produce the film, alongside Witherspoon and Lauren Neustadter.

The 21-year-old star launched her acting career by landing the role of Rocky Blue in Disney Channel sitcom Shake It Up.

The singer-turned-actress next will be seen co-starring in the Michael Gracie-directed The Greatest Showman, co-starring alongside Hugh Jackman.

Not only is she an bonafide moviestar starring in hit films like Spider-man: Homecoming and its untitled sequel, but she has sprinkled that Black Girl Magic (as a producer and actor) all over the runaway Disney hit KC Undercover.
