‘Girls Trip’ Malcolm D. Lee Gets New Movie Picked Up By Fox


Twentieth Century Fox Film has acquired “Rock the Bells,” a pitch from “Girls Trip” director Malcolm D. Lee, reports Deadline.com.

The story is being kept under wraps but it’s described as a “hybrid Christmas family comedy,” written by Malcolm Spellman and Dalan Musson.

Lee and Tajamika Paxton will produce under Lee’s Blackmaled Productions banner. Melanie Clark, VP Production, and Development for Blackmaled Productions will oversee.

Lee is coming off the sleeper summer hit “Girls Trip,” the first $100 million-grossing film with an all-African-American creative team in front of and behind the camera.

Lee reteamed with producer Will Packer and is currently shooting Night School, starring Kevin Hart and “Girls Trip” breakout star Tiffany Haddish.
