Jada Pinkett Smith is set to star in the Netflix drama “Redd Zone”, a true story about a single mother who takes a group of high school footballers under her wing after the murder of their best friend, Dominic Redd.
The “Girls Trip” star will play the role of Tia Magee in the movie based on the true story of a single mother (Tia), “who helps her sons and their high school football teammates, “The Bros”, heal after the murder of their best friend, Dominic Redd.”
“Magee’s son, Brandon Magee, became a linebacker for the Cleveland Browns and Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and was later drafted by the Boston Red Sox to play outfield.”
Brandon Magee is set to executive produce.
“Redd Zone” is a tribute to the real-life Dominic Redd.
Meanwhile, Jada’s other upcoming movies include “The Matrix 4” and executive producing the biopic ‘King Richard’.
As for the latter, Jada’s husband Will Smith leads the movie, which tells the story of how Richard Williams (Smith) turned daughters Venus and Serena into tennis legends from a tough upbringing in Compton, Los Angeles.
The project is helmed by Reinaldo Marcus Green and will feature Saniyya Sidney and Demi Singleton as the young Venus and Serena, with Aunjanue Ellis playing their mother, Brandi.
