Girls Trip, the new comedy from director/producer MALCOLM D. LEE (The Best Man
franchise, Barbershop: The Next Cut) and producer WILL PACKER (Ride Along and
Think Like a Man franchises) follows four lifelong friends-Ryan, Dina, Lisa and
Sasha-as they travel to New Orleans for the annual Essence Festival, where
sisterhoods are rekindled, wild sides are rediscovered and there's enough
dancing, drinking, brawling and romancing to make The Big Easy blush.
The all-star cast is led by REGINA HALL (When the Bough Breaks) as Ryan Pierce,
a successful author at the crossroads in her marriage; TIFFANY HADDISH (Keanu)
as the hotheaded, free-spirited and fiercely loyal Dina; JADA PINKETT SMITH (Bad
Moms) as Lisa Cooper, a conservative nurse and mother of two children who
desperately needs a weekend getaway; and QUEEN LATIFAH (Miracles from Heaven) as
Sasha Franklin, a gossip blogger who is circling a life reset of her own.
The film co-stars an array of talented supporting cast, including LARENZ TATE
(Love Jones) as Julian Stevens, the ladies' friend from their university days;
KOFI SIRIBOE (TV's Queen Sugar) as Malik, a charming festival-goer who captures
Lisa's attention; MIKE COLTER (Netflix's Luke Cage) as Stewart Pierce, a retired
NFL player and Ryan's charismatic husband; KATE WALSH (TV's Private Practice) as
Elizabeth Davelli, Ryan's all-too-eager agent; and DEBORAH AYORINDE (Luke Cage)
as Simone, an acquaintance of Stewart's who proves distracting to the weekend.
Lee and Packer are joined behind the scenes by a seasoned crew of longtime
collaborators, one led by director of photography GREG GARDINER (The Best Man
Holiday, Elf), production designer KEITH BRIAN BURNS (The Best Man Holiday,
Hustle & Flow), editor PAUL MILLSPAUGH (The Best Man Holiday, Barbershop: The
Next Cut), costume designer DANIELLE HOLLOWELL (The Best Man series, Undercover
Brother) and composer DAVID NEWMAN (Welcome Home, Roscoe Jenkins, Nutty
