Teyana Taylor has been slaying stages, music videos, and fashion runways with her sexy, choreographed dancing, but she has a lot more bigger things happening with her revived career.
According to Deadline, the singer, actress, model, and dancer is set to star in the upcoming Netflix film ‘The After Party’ along with Blair Underwood and recording artists French Montana, Wiz Khalifa and Kyle Harvey (Kyle).
The project, written by Ian Edelman (How to Make It in America), who will also direct, comes via a joint venture with Def Pictures, WorldStar Hip Hop, Hunting Lane Films and Live Nation Productions.
‘The After Party’ revolves around two best friends on their last night together trying to achieve a record deal before one heads to college and the other leaves for military service. In one wild night, a lot will go down before the sun comes up and these two lifelong friends either have succeeded on their quest or must go their separate ways.
The coming-of-age comedy also includes co-stars Jordan Rock, Harrison Holzer (Sex Tape) and Shelley Hennig (Teen Wolf).
Russell Simmons is producing the project with Jake Stein, Jamie Patricof, Heather Parry, Trevor Engelson, Doug Banker and the late Worldstar Hip Hop founder Lee “Q” O’Denat, who was inspired to develop the idea because of his love of such classic coming-of-age films Ferris Bueller’s Day Off and American Graffiti.
Filming is underway in New York.
It’s currently unclear what role Taylor will play in the film.
In related news, Taylor showed off her show-stopping dance moves during the recent VH1 Hip Hop Honors as she tributed some of the 90’s biggest hits.
