Reese Witherspoon and Zendaya Team Up for a Girl Power-Fueled Film

Zendaya Will Play 1st African American Woman to Graduate From Vassar Fatima Barrie

Now, Zendaya is adding to the girl power by collaborating with Witherspoon as a co-producer on an wonderful new film-and she'll star in it, too. Hemmings is known as the first Black women to graduate from Vassar College in 1897-a time when African Americans weren't allowed to attend the school. Based on the book The Guilded Years by Karin Tanabe, the film will be produced by Reese Witherspoon, as reported by Billboard.

It's particularly meaningful to cast Zendaya in the role of Hemmings, as she's spoken openly about racial diversity, among other important issues. She even finds romance with a rich Harvard student, but he (nor anyone else) know her real identity.

The K.C. Undercover actress will also produce the movie alongside Reese Witherspoon through Reese's motion picture company Hello Sunshine, Variety reports. A WHITE LIE is labeled as a "psychological thriller".
