Tiffany Haddish has kept audiences laughing in hit comedies like Girls Trip and Night School. Now the comedienne is in final talks to appear in the upcoming sci-fi thriller, Landscape With Invisible Hand, based on the 2017 novel by National Book Award Winner M.T. Anderson.
The film will be produced by Annapurna and Plan B with writing and directing duties falling to Cory Finley (Helmer of HBO’s Bad Education starring Hugh Jackman, Allison Janney, and Geraldine Viswanathan).
Check out the official synopsis for Landscape With Invisible Hand.
Landscape With Invisible Hand Synopsis
Published in 2017 to rave reviews and compared to films such as District 9 and The Truman Show, Landscape with Invisible Hand depict a near future in which an alien species known as the Vuvv has taken over Earth. After the Vuvv’s labor-saving technology causes Earth’s job market and global economy to collapse, a teenager and his girlfriend cook up a way to make much-needed money by broadcasting their dating life to the fascinated aliens. Unfortunately, things go badly when, over time, the two teens come to hate each other and can’t break up without bankrupting their families.
It’s unknown who Haddish will play or when the film will release theatrically, but United Artists Releasing (an arm of MGM) plans to distribute it. Tiffany Haddish recently headlined Like A Boss with Rose Byrne and Salma Hayek and has several upcoming comedies: Bad Trip (a hidden camera comedy), On The Count of Three (directed by Jerrod Carmichael), The Unbelievable Weight of Massive Talent (starring Nicolas Cage), and the third installment in the SpongeBob SquarePants film series, titled The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge On The Run.
