Paul Feig and Tiffany Haddish will produce a new musical dance dramedy called Throw It Back, Deadline reports. The upcoming film is set to be launched at the virtual Cannes market.

Throw It Back follows Wytrell, a high school senior who has never stood out from the crowd. After a controversial superstar Miami rapper decides to feature the renowned dance team from her high school in his latest music video, it throws the school into chaos, and Wytrell battles for a spot on the squad and her final chance to be in the spotlight.

The dance-filled musical dramedy is set to a soundtrack of southern hip hop and HBCU collegiate band rhythms.

Shadae Lamar Smith will make his feature directorial debut, having served as resident music video director for Will.i.am. The screenplay was written by Smith and 2021 Film Independent Screenwriting Fellow Rochée Jeffrey (Woke).
