Central Casting is looking for new talent to work alongside the cast of the new Girl Trip movie starring Queen Latifah and Jada Pinkett Smith. Casting directors are looking for African American looking men and women to play Essence Festival Goers. Filming will take place between August 15th through August 18th in New Orleans, Louisiana.


About Girls Trip:

Girls Trip will be directed by Malcolm Lee (Barbershop, Best Man Holiday) and executive produced by Will Packer (Straight Outta Compton, Ride Along, Think Like A Man). Girls Trip centers on four lifelong friends who travel to New Orleans for the annual Essence Festival. Sisterhoods are rekindled, wild sides are rediscovered, and there’s enough dancing, drinking, brawling and romancing to make the Big Easy blush.
