Vanessa Hudgens (High School Musical, Grease Live!) and Annaleigh Ashford (American Crime Story, Masters of Sex) have joined the cast of the upcoming Jennifer Lopez (Out of SightMaid in Manhattan)-led romantic comedy Second Act, according to Deadline. Peter Segal will direct the film, which was developed by STX with Lopez from an idea conceived by Elaine Goldsmith-Thomas and Justin Zackham. Leah Remini (The King of Queen, Kevin Can Wait) is also cast in the film. The STXfilms has cast Vanessa Hudgens in the role of Zoe, a young executive at the Big Box store the film is set in, and Annaleigh Ashford will play the role of Hildy. Hudgens tweeted about being excited to start filming with a pic of herself and Lopez. You can check it out below.

Second Act is a romantic comedy in the vein of Maid In Manhattan, which also starred Lopez, and the comedy classic Working Girl. When a Big Box store employee, played by Lopez, reinvents her life and her lifestyle, she gets the chance to prove to Madison Avenue that street smarts are as valuable as a college degree, and that it is never too late for a Second Act. Leah Remini will play the role of “Joan,” Lopez’s best friend and fellow Big Box employee from Queens.

Written by Justin Zackham (The Bucket List, the FX Series Lights Out) and Elaine Goldsmith-Thomas, the project will be produced by Elaine Goldsmith-Thomas, Jennifer Lopez, Justin Zackham and Benny Medina.
