Insecure actress Yvonne Orji is set to join Kevin Hart and Tiffany Haddish in Hart’s upcoming comedy Night School. The movie, based on a story by Hart, follows a group of misfits who are forced to attend adult classes in the longshot chance that they’ll pass the GED exam.

The movie is set to open on September 28, 2018.
