Taraji P. Henson Is Directing Her First Movie & She'll Star In It Too!

Taraji P. Henson is set to make her feature film directorial debut with the upcoming movie Two-Faced!

The Oscar-nominated actress will also produce and star in the movie, which is being made at Bron Studios.

Deadline reports that the movie “follows Joy, a Black high school senior whose chances to attend the college of her dreams are threatened by her wildly popular and charismatic school principal, Jerald, after she confronts him with evidence of his racist past. With the help of her friends, Joy sets out to expose Jerald for who he truly is but quickly learns that he is not above waging all-out-war against the students trying to take him down.”

Taraji will play the role of Joy’s mother Gina Robinson.

She said in a statement, “After two decades spent in front of the camera, I’m thrilled to finally jump behind it for my feature directorial debut! What first attracted me to this project was Joy – she is the character I needed to see in films growing up, but never had. It’s important that stories be told from a woman’s point of view and partnering with Bron Studios and the amazingly talented Tim Story – both who use their platforms to help elevate women and people of color – feels like the perfect match. I can’t wait to bring this hilariously heartfelt script by Cat Wilkins to life!”

A couple weeks ago, Taraji showed off her dance moves while hosting an awards show!
