GIRLS TRIP

Production Information
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 Professor series).

The screenplay for Girls Trip is by KENYA BARRIS (creator of TV's Black-ish) & TRACY OLIVER (Barbershop: The Next Cut), from a story by ERICA RIVINOJA (TV's The Last Man on Earth) and Barris & Oliver.

JAMES LOPEZ (The Perfect Guy), head of motion pictures for Will Packer Productions, and PRESTON HOLMES (Birth of a Nation) executive produce.

Girls Trip was shot in New Orleans.
