Queen Latifah and the Instagram model Amiyah Scott are to star in a spin-off of Lee Daniels‘ hit show ‘Empire.’
Good news for fans of the creative below…
Scott had been linked to a role in the latest season of the ‘Real Housewives of Atlanta’ but was reportedly cut out of its current edit before its first episode aired.
However, all isn’t lost for the Southern belle. For, Daniels reached out to her in August to offer her a role in his latest project…a ‘Empire‘ spin-off starring Queen Latifah which tells the story of the character Cookie Lyon before she became Cookie Lyon.
Our production sources say Daniels loved Amiyah’s look and thought she’d be perfect for one of the singers in a girl group.
A premiere date is yet to be anounced.
