Aja has been cast in a new project called “A Girl from Mogadishu,” which is the story of Ifrah Ahmed and her extraordinary journey to escape war-torn Somalia. The film is written and directed by Mary McGuckian and is currently filming. It is scheduled to be released in 2018. Congrats, Aja!
Aja has been cast in the upcoming project Untouchable, alongside Kevin Hart, Bryan Cranston, Nicole Kidman, and Genevieve Angelson.
Based on a true story, the movie is a remake of the smash 2011 French film The Intouchables, about a friendship that begins when two unlikely lives intersect: quadriplegic millionaire Philip (Bryan Cranston) takes on Dell (Kevin Hart) as his caregiver, and the two form an unusual bond. Aja will play Latrice, the mother of Dell’s son. Upset by Dell’s unwillingness to hold onto a job or stay out of trouble, she is later surprised and wary when he starts giving her his sizable paychecks. The executive producers on the film are Harvey Weinstein, Bob Weinstein and G. Mac Brown.
Congrats to Aja for the new role!
