Tiffany Haddish is taking on a new project!

The 41-year-old actress will star and produce an adaptation of the Dark Horse comic Mystery Girl for Netflix, per Deadline.

Tiffany will play Trine, a woman making her living as a street psychic who has no memory of who she is or where she came from but has an all-knowing voice in her head that tells her everyone’s secrets. When an LAPD officer named Cooper turns to Trine to help him solve a case, the two are framed for murder and have to work to together to clear their names.

Tiffany is producing the film under her She Ready Productions label alongside Mike Richardson and Keith Goldberg for Dark Horse Entertainment, the production company that previously worked with Netflix on The Umbrella Academy.

Tiffany was recently spotted on a romantic date with her boyfriend Common. Find out what racy advice a 67-year-old fan gave to her about their relationship!

Why is The Queen’s Gambit so Popular?

Putting aside the obvious first: Beth Harmon is mesmerizing. You can’t take your eyes off her. That flaming red hair, those huge chocolate-brown eyes.

At its core it’s a feel-good story, but a disturbing one, that’s cleverly set up and acted out. Her addiction to drugs appears to be fatal. We already know from the very first scene that she is headed for an epic fail at some point in her career. But will that be the end? – we are left in suspense. Meanwhile, we are fully absorbed in a lovingly recreated period piece where the ambience, the decor, and especially the clothes Beth wears express her personality and the changing times perfectly.

Seems like things are going to end badly for her no matter what her initial success is. Her life is on a perpetual knife-edge, a high-tension game of chess. But while we’re waiting for this to happen, she develops emotional self-awareness – mainly through the tender unspoken touchless love between her and her adoptive mom. She enjoys the same unexpected support from several other characters – almost all of them, in fact, except her schoolmates. We can’t see her as a “user”, because she’s potentially such a loser.

There’s a pivot point when she’s invited to join a teen-girl party. These schoolgirls had bullied her as an outsider, but now she has some status from her early chess triumphs. They are willing to embrace her and engage her in respectful conversation. Her little black dress is more classy and grown-up than what they’re wearing. Then a catchy song comes on the TV, and they start singing and dancing spontaneously. It’s a great scene.

She doesn’t have that kind of spontaneity – in fact, it kind of horrifies her. She can’t make sense of it. She flees the scene. We see later how their kind of teenage sensuality and passion ends. She is too smart, dispassionate, and driven by ambition to be seduced by that – life is black and white for her. She still has her demons of drug and alcohol addiction to slay before she can become a whole person.

Thousands of people ask Netflix to cancel Amazon Prime Good Omens

More than 20,000 Christians have signed a petition for the cancellation of Good Omens, the television series adapted from the fantasy novel by Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman of 1990, which unfortunately is directed to Netflix when the series is made by Amazon Prime.

The six-part series was released last month, starring David Tennant as the demon Crowley and Michael Sheen as the angel Aziraphale, who collaborate to prevent the arrival of the antichrist and an impending apocalypse. Pratchett’s last request to Gaiman before he died was that he adapt the novel they wrote together; Gaiman wrote the script and worked as a showrunner in the BBC / Amazon co-production, which Radio Times called “a devilishly funny love letter to the book.”

But Christians organized by the Return to Order campaign, a branch of the United States Foundation for a Christian civilization, do not agree. More than 20,000 supporters have signed a petition saying Good Omens is “another step to make satanism seem normal, light and acceptable,” and “mocks the wisdom of God.” God, they complain, it is “expressed by a woman” – Frances McDormand – the antichrist is a “normal child” and, most importantly, “this kind of video brings to light Truth, Error, Good and Evil , and it destroys the barriers of the horror that society still has for the devil. “They are calling Netflix to cancel the program.

Return to Order is based on the writings of author John Horvat II. “He calls on Americans to put the principles into practice by working towards what is called an organic Christian society.” Another request in April called on Walmart to “stop selling satanic products” after a protest in 2018 against a “blasphemous ice cream chain called Sweet Jesus.”
