London Hughes is a Hot Mess in Film

2009 Funny Women Awards winner London Hughes is set to star in a film she is writing. The comedian tweeted: “So beyond Happy to announce, that I AM STARRING IN MY OWN MOVIE… it’s called “Hot Mess” it’s from the makers of “Girls Trip” and it’s loosely based on my life!!!!”

Hot Mess will be written by Noushin Jahanian and based on an idea they had with London Hughes. Will Packer and James Lopez will produce the film and Johanna Byer will executive produce. Lopez said: “After witnessing London’s first performance of her one-woman show in the States, I knew I had to be in business with her… We are thrilled to be working with London and Noushin on this project and look forward to audiences experiencing their edgy brand of humor.”

In a statement London said: “Will Packer and James Lopez are my LA Fairy God-Dudes! James was one of the first executives I met when I got to the States and he immediately believed in me, I’m beyond excited for the world to see what we’ve been up to.”

London added to her celebratory announcement tweet that: “It is sooo important to me to tell Black British female stories, I can’t believe I get to do so in HOLLYWOOD and on a Global scale!! I’m so grateful for the opportunity i’m sooo bloody excited.”
