Aja Naomi King Lands Her Next Big Screen Role


Aja Naomi King Joins ‘Untouchable’ Cast

Actress Aja Naomi King is set to co-star alongside Nicole Kidman, Bryan Cranston and Kevin Hart in the remake of the 2011 French film The Intouchables. Based on a true story, the film tells the tale of a millionaire quadriplegic (Cranston) and his caregiver (Hart) who form an unlikely bond when they both experience a crisis of faith.

King, who currently stars as Michaela Pratt on How to Get Away with Murder, will play Latrice, the wife of Kevin Hart’s character; Dell. Reportedly upset by her husband’s inability to grow up and hold down a job, Latrice is later surprised and wary when Dell starts giving her his very sizable paychecks.

Filming on Untouchable began earlier week and is expected to wrap up in early summer. The Weinstein Company is reportedly looking to release the film in time to be considered for the 2018 award season.
