Jonah Hill is joining the cast of a new comedy!

The 37-year-old actor is teaming up with director Kenya Barris for a new movie at Netflix, THR reports.

According the outlet, the pair have co-written the new film, which is described as a modern take on the 1967 classic Look Who’s Coming to Dinner.

The original movie centers on a white couple’s daughter who surprises her parents by introducing them to her Black fiance. It starred Spencer Tracy, Katharine Hepburn, Sidney Poitier and Katharine Houghton.

Kenya is best known for his work on Black-ish. He recently confirmed the upcoming eighth season of the series would be its final.

It was recently announced that Jonah would also be starring in a new limited series about legendary Hollywood fixer Sidney Korshak.

A few months ago, the actor also opened up about why he’s finally comfortable going shirtless in public.
