Issa Rae is developing a Set It Off remake

The “Insecure” actress and co-creator is said to be in the early process of a re-imagining of the classic crime thriller, which starred Jada Pinkett Smith, Vivica Fox, Queen Latifah, and Kimberley Elise.

According to Variety, Rae “will produce with plans to star” in the movie, while Syreeta Singleton and Nina Gloste are set to pen the script.

The original 1996 movie — which grossed $41 million at the box office from a $9 million budget — told the tale of four close friends pulling off a series of bank robberies across Los Angeles.

The movie propelled the careers of all four leading stars and director F. Gary Gray.

Meanwhile, Rae — who is set to star in romantic comedies The Photograph and The Lovebirds next year — previously said she wants people to like her for her “mind” rather than her appearance.
