Anything You Can Do, I Can Do... YOUNGER

14-year-old ‘Black-ish’ star, Marsai Martin, has become the youngest executive producer in Hollywood history after the premiere of the new comical film Little

 

Black-ish star, Marsai Martin, recently released her trailer for her upcoming film, “Little,” at the astounding age of 14-years-old. According to Entertainment Tonight, the film is a modern rendition of the 1988 critically acclaimed film Big starring Tom Hanks.

Martin set out to pitch her idea when she was only 11-years-old. She dreamt the concept of the film and immediately took the idea to her former agent. According to ABC News, her agent reluctantly suggested that instead of working on new projects in between shooting seasons of ABC’s hottest new hit show, Black-ish, she should “relax and just chill”. Martin fired the agent soon after.

The driven star from Los Angeles then took her idea to Tracy Oliver, who quickly became the co-writer of the film, and Kenya Barris to finalize the best pitch for Universal Pictures.

According to Rolling Stone, the film is about a high-strung tech mogul named Jordan, portrayed by Regina Hall, who has lost her compassion and consideration amid her success. She is accompanied by her assistant April, played by HBO’s Insecure creator Issa Rae, who suggests ways the company could grow but Jordan suggests, “that she focuses on being her assistant.” Further along the film, Jordan upsets a young girl in the office which leads to the young girl in casting a spell on the ill-tempered woman. The very next morning, Jordan wakes up in her penthouse apartment as her 13-year-old self being depicted by Marsai Martin.

Throughout the film, young Jordan relives the carefree life of being a kid again and realizes that everything does not have to be serious.

With all the excitement creating around the premiere of the trailer, Martin tweeted: “When the world tells you your dream is too big … you search for folks that can see your vision.”

The young star has been in countless films, from biopics such as NINA, the untold story of Miss Nina Simone to animated tales, Mr. Peabody and Sherman. She has been destined for greatness since the age of five.

Although the position of executive producer and actor can be difficult to handle from time to time, Martin admits that she will plan on performing the unbelievable.

In a recent interview with Entertainment Tonight’s Courtney Torenzo, Martin explained, “This is this first movie I have in front of the camera and behind the camera. And it’s not going to be my last.”

Little sets to open in theaters on April 12. Watch the trailer here!
