Reese Witherspoon & Zendaya Are Teaming Up on New Film 'A White Lie'

Thanks to Zendaya and Witherspoon, A White Lie will be headed by its all-woman team: women producers, a female star, and a woman writer and screenwriter. Hemmings is known as the first Black women to graduate from Vassar College in 1897-a time when African Americans weren't allowed to attend the school. Based on the book The Guilded Years by Karin Tanabe, the film will be produced by Reese Witherspoon, as reported by Billboard.

Even while she tried to distance herself from classmates, Anita eventually found herself rooming with Louise "Lottie" Taylor, the scion of one of New York's most prominent families. "She's pulled into her elite world where she's treated as a wealthy, educated white woman who finds romance with a moneyed Harvard student". She produced and starred in two episodes of the Disney Channel's K.C. Undercover earlier this year. According to a report by Deadline, which called the film "the hottest pitch package" around Hollywood, the 21-year-old actress will play Hemmings, based on a script by The Leftovers and Fargo writer Monica Beletsky.
