Thesp joins Diggs, Underwood

Regina Hall has signed for the female lead in Warner Bros. Pictures’ untitled Jamie Kennedy project, directed by John Whitesell.

In addition to Kennedy, the cast includes Taye Diggs and Blair Underwood. Shooting begins early next month.

Hall plays a young woman from Compton who aids in a kidnapping in order to get the money to open her own beauty salon.

Project is based on one of Kennedy’s characters from the WB network sketch comedy series “JKX: The Jamie Kennedy Experiment.”

Nick Swardson wrote the script, with Fax Bahr, Adam Small and Kennedy rewriting. Mike Karz is producing with Bahr and Small.

A former season regular on “Ally McBeal,” Hall will next star in Dimension Films’ late summer release “Paid in Full.” She also had a leading role in “Scary Movie” and its sequel.
