Actor Naomi Ackie is all set to star opposite Channing Tatum in Pussy Islands. The news comes just after MGM landed global distribution rights to the film, which marks Zoe Kravitz directorial debut.

Kravitz has also written the script of Pussy Island, along with ET Feigenbaum. As per the log, the film follows Frida (Ackie), a young, Los Angeles cocktail waiter who develops an interest in philanthropist and tech mogul Slater King (Tatum). She skillfully manoeuvres her way into King’s inner circle and ultimately into an intimate gathering on his private island. However, despite the epic setting, beautiful people, ever-flowing champagne and late-night dance parties, Frida senses that there’s more to the island than meets the eye. Something she can’t quite put her finger on, and something terrifying.

Bruce Cohen, Kravitz, Tiffany Persons and Tatum’s Free Association will produce the film.

Meanwhile, Ackie is set to play Whitney Houston in the Sony biopic I Wanna Dance With Somebody. She currently stars in Season 3 of Aziz Ansari and Alan Yang’s Master of None. Notably, Ackie recently won a BAFTA for her role in Netflix’s The End of the F***Ing World. She has also appeared in Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker and Steve McQueen’s anthology series Small Axe.

Pussy Island is a co-production between This Is Important, Free Association and Bruce Cohen Productions.
