Zendaya is set to star in a new film via Reese Witherspoon‘s production company Hello Sunshine called, A White Lie!
The film is based on Karin Tanabe’s book “The Gilded Years,” which tells “the true story of Anita Hemmings, a light-skinned, African-American woman who was the descendant of slaves and passed as white so she could attend Vassar during the 1890s. She’s pulled into her elite world where she’s treated as a wealthy, educated white woman who finds romance with a moneyed Harvard student.”
Sounds interesting! Can’t wait to see what Zendaya brings to the screen.
