Marsai Martin will hold the title as the youngest black executive producer in Hollywood history, as the release of her film Little is slated to hit theaters in the spring.
The 14-year-old black-ish actress, who will star alongside Issa Rae and Regina Hall in the body-switching comedy, said that the film was inspired by the movie Big, which she watched at the age of 10.
“It was one of my most favorite films growing up,” Martin said of the Tom Hanks classic. “After the Season 1 finale of Black-ish, we told Kenya Barris about it, and he called Will [Packer] and said: ‘Yo, you know the girl who plays Diane on Black-ish? She has this dope idea!’”
