As reported, a movie about the talkshow maven is heading to Lifetime.
Now, as it gears up to begin production this month, it’s been announced that the former shock jock will be played by Ciera Payton – whose credits include ‘The Oval’ and ‘She’s Gotta Have It.’
Morocco Omari (who has starred in ‘P-Valley’ and ‘Empire’) will portray Williams’ ex-husband Kevin Hunter.
The film, which has a working title ‘Wendy Williams: The Hot Topic’ is directed by Darren Grant and is executive produced by Williams herself.
It promises an unfiltered look into the life of the star – in front of the lens and behind it.
Set to arrive in 2021, the movie will arrive alongside a feature length documentary on Williams.
