Universal gives the go light to a comedy project in which Tiffany Haddish will appear, about an imaginary buddy that acts as a substitute for family

Universal Pictures is giving I.F., a live-action hybrid family comedy starring Tiffany Haddish, to director Mike Mitchell, with Darren Lemke serving as the writer. Like Who Framed Roger Rabbit, the movie combines animation with real action. The image depicts a fictitious buddy.

Lemke’s work on Goosebumps and Shazam! is among her notable writing credentials. Mitchell directed both Shrek Forever After and The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part, in which Lemke also worked on.

Haddish has partnered with Safehouse Pictures’ Tory Tunnell and Joby Harold for her She Ready production company.

Aside from those titles, Tiffany Haddish is set to appear in the upcoming Paul Schrader film The Card Counter and will be serving as executive producer on the films She Ready, which is producing The Bardess, and The Untitled Aida Rodriguez Project. Robin Hood and King Arthur: Legend of the Sword are recent works by Safehouse.

UTA represents Mitchell, Hansen, Jacobson, and Craig Emanuel; Kaplan/Perrone and Hansen represent Lemke; and UTA, Brillstein Partners, and Ziffren Brittenham represent Haddish.
