Deadline reported that Tiffany Haddish has signed on to star in Tyler Perry’s “The List” for Paramount/Viacom Inc.

The movie, about a woman released from prison who helps her sister realize that she might be getting catfished, will open on Nov. 2.

Haddish is set to star opposite Tracy Morgan in the TBS sitcom “The Last OG,” and alongside Kevin Hart in Universal’s “Night School.”

For Haddish, word of the deal came after last month Deadline broke that Melissa McCarthy was finalizing a deal to star with her in “The Kitchen” — a female-focused drama, not a comedy project — on which Andrea Berloff will make her directorial debut.

New Line Cinema and DC Entertainment are making the film, with a screenplay that Straight Outta Compton scribe Berloff wrote based on the 2014 comic book series by Ollie Masters and Ming Doyle for DC’s Vertigo.
