Regina Hall is set to star in the Andrew Bujalski indie comedy Support The Girls! She’ll be joining Haley Lu Richardson, James Le Gros, AJ Michalka, Dylan Gelula, Shayna McHayle, Lea DeLaria, Jana Kramer and Brooklyn Decker in Support The Girls, a new indie comedy from writer-director Andrew Bujalski. Production is underway in Austin.

Sam Slater will produce for Burn Later Productions alongside Houston King of Houston King Productions, reteaming with writer-director Bujalski after they produced his 2015 Sundance pic Results. Jonathan Fryd, Scott Carmel and David Bernon are executive producers.

Support The Girls centers on Lisa Conroy (Hall) and her struggling feelings about managing the restaurant Double Whammies while loving her employees and closest friends, Danyelle (McHale) and Maci (Richardson), as well as her extended family. Unfortunately, the cheap, curmudgeonly owner Ben Cubby (Le Gros) doesn’t care nearly as much, and confronts Lisa when he learns that she’s using the restaurant to raise money for Shaina (Kramer), an employee in legal trouble related to an abusive boyfriend. To get even, the girls decide to sabotage the restaurant on the night of a major mixed martial arts fight.

Since evolving from her arguably most-well-known role as Brenda Meeks in the Scary Movie franchise, Hall has racked up notable film roles such as Malibu’s Most Wanted, Think Like a Man, Think Like a Man Too, The Best Man Holiday (where she reprised her role as Candace Sparks), Vacation, About Last Night, and Barbershop: The Next Cut. She also has a recurring role in ABC’s Black-ish. She is repped by ICM Partners and Principato-Young Entertainment, and Richardson by Gersh, 3 Arts Entertainment and Coast to Coast Talent Group.

Congrats to Regina Hall! We’re sure her charismatic energy will translate well into this leading role!
