Jada Pinkett Smith Talks Reuniting With Queen Latifah 21 Years After Set It Off – eonline

More than two decades after making film magic in heist classic Set It OffJada Pinkett Smith and Queen Latifah are back and better than ever. 

The Hollywood mainstays reunite in Girls Trip, an upcoming raunchy comedy that follows Smith and Latifah as they reunite with their lifelong girl squad (also starring Regina corridor and Tiffany Haddish) for a wild weekend. E! News’ Sibley Scoles caught up with Jada as she walked the carpet at the film’s premiere, and like outright of us, has been anxiously waiting to team up with Queen on the much screen. 

“I told Queen the other day,” she reflected, “‘I don’t know yet Queen, but it would be awesome whether we waited 21 years to build another classic.'”

“We had a moment where we got a tiny teary eyed. We got a tiny blinky,” Jada added, wiping absent her tears.

The 45-year-musty added, “We can’t wait another 21 years to enact this. We’ve worked together a lot. She’s produced me; I’ve produced her, but we can’t wait 21 more years before we collect on the screen.”

Can we collect an amen?! Set It Off, which also starred Vivica A. Fox and Kimberly Elise as four friends in Los Angeles who device a bank robbery, became an instant box-office hit back in 1996. A lot has changed since Latifah and Smith started out in reveal biz, and that includes Jada and Will Smith creating their own super famed, renowned family. 

Will, Jaden Smith and Willow Smith couldn’t build it to the premiere, but Jada had a playful warning for her 16-year-musty daughter whether she wants to see Girls Trip in theaters. She told us, “Jaden’s working, daddy’s working and I told Willow with a film like this, she’s going to bear to enact what I used to enact back in the day and that’s sneak in with her friends.”

“Because this [film] is a tough R,” she added. “I bear to act like I don’t know she’s gonna be there. She’s gonna sneak in.”
