The world discovered Tiffany Haddish over the past year, and the world (including everyone from Film Twitter to Paul Thomas Anderson to anyone who saw the actress speak at last year's New York Film Critics Circle Awards) has made it clear that it would like to see more from her. Luckily, it appears Hollywood is happy to oblige.
According to Variety, Haddish has just signed on to play one of the lead roles in The LEGO Movie 2, the sequel to Phil Lord and Chris Miller's 2014 hit.
Sure, we're eager to see the actual Tiffany Haddish onscreen again, but let's not downplay what a coup this is for her: The LEGO Movie made nearly $500M at the worldwide box office, and its sequel is about as highly-anticipated as these things get. This is a big role in what's almost guaranteed to be a big film, in other words, and we're thrilled to hear that Haddish will be a part of it.
Nothing further to report at this time in terms of plot or who Haddish's co-stars might be, but of course we'll be keeping a very close eye on this one as it works its way through production. While we're waiting on the next update, go ahead and hit the comments below to tell us who you'd like to see Haddish working with next (and don't bother saying PTA, we're pretty sure that's happening already).
