Insecure breakout star Yvonne Orjiis set to star in a new sci-fi movie from Awesomeness films.  The multitalented actor and comedian will play Special Agent Rosetti in the upcoming film Spontaneous, and from what we know so far about the film, it sounds like it’ll be quite the thriller.

According to the official synopsis:  Mara Carlye (Katherine Langford), whose life is forever changed when students in her senior class literally explode for no discernible reason. As students continue to pop like blood-filled balloons and the town descends into both chaos and apathy, Mara and her friends stay close together as they await possible combustion – wondering what part of life is worth living if it might end suddenly.

In addition to Orji and Langford, the film will also star Piper Perabo and Rob Huebel, Hayley Law, and Charlie Plummer.

In addition to her breakout role as Molly in HBO’s Insecure, Orji is also the creator and star of First Gen a semi-autobiographical comedy which has David Oyelowo and Oprah Winfrey attached as exec producers. The series centers on Joanna (Orji), a first generation Nigerian-American who trades in a stable career in medicine for a career in stand up comedy.  Orji will star alongside Kevin Hart and another one of our personal favorites, Tiffany Haddish, in the upcoming comedy Night School.
