Naomi Ackie Lands Female Lead in 'Pussy Island' Movie Opposite Channing Tatum

Naomi Ackie has landed the lead female role in the upcoming movie Pussy Island, which will mark the directorial debut of Zoe Kravitz.

Channing Tatum will be leading the film alongside Naomi, who is best known for appearing in the Star Wars franchise and in the Netflix shows Master of None and End of the F*cking World.

Deadline reports that Naomi will play Frida, “a young, clever, Los Angeles cocktail waitress who has her eyes set on the prize: philanthropist and tech mogul Slater King (Tatum). When she skillfully maneuvers her way into King’s inner circle and ultimately an intimate gathering on his private island, she is ready for a journey of a lifetime. Despite the epic setting, beautiful people, ever-flowing champagne and late-night dance parties, Frida can sense that there’s more to this island than meets the eye. Something she can’t quite put her finger on. Something terrifying.”

Stella Meghie is directing the film from a screenplay by Bohemian Rhapsody writer Anthony McCarten, and is set to be released Thanksgiving of 2022.

“We spent the better part of the last year in an exhaustive search for an actress who could embody Whitney Houston. Naomi Ackie impressed us at every stage of the process. I was moved by her ability to capture the stage presence of a global icon while bringing humanity to her interior life,” the director said in a statement.

“Naomi Ackie’s screen test was so powerful, it sent shivers up my spine. Although Whitney’s incomparable vocals are used for all the songs, Naomi’s extraordinary acting range enables her to masterfully capture Whitney’s unique charm, star power and, of course, her personal struggles. Naomi is the real deal and I can’t imagine a better choice for this iconic role,” said producer Clive Davis.

The movie “follows the life and times of Houston, the iconic artist behind timeless hits like ‘I Will Always Love You’ and ‘How Will I Know.’”
