Alicia Keys’ Dance Comedy ‘Work It’ Sets Sabrina Carpenter As Lead

Sabrina Carpenter has taken the lead in the Alicia Keys dance comedy production Work It from STXfilms and Alloy Entertainment. The pic, which was announced at CinemaCon during Stx’s session, is being directed and rewritten by Laura Terruso from an original script by Alison Peck (whose UglyDolls opens tomorrow).

Work It is a coming of age comedy which follows an awkward teenage girl (Carpenter) who after being rejected from her high school’s dance team, assembles a crew of bold and fearless misfits to compete against them in a national dance championship.

Carpenter is currently starring in Short History of The Long Road, which recently premiered to rave reviews at the Tribeca Film Festival. Her additional credits include The Hate U Give and Tall Girl. Her new album Singular: Act 2will be released this summer. She is represented by Paradigm, Foundation Media Partners, Faculty, Shemarya and Sgsbc, Llp.
