Tiffany Haddish, Billy Crystal to Star in “Here Today”

Tiffany Haddish and Billy Crystal team up for a new rom-com romance called Here Today. 

The independent feature follows Charlie Berns (Crystal), a veteran comedy writer who slowly loses his grip on reality before meeting a talented street singer, Emma Paige (Haddish) with whom he starts a hilarious, touching, and grounding friendship with.

Crystal is also directing from a script he co-wrote with Alan Zweibel. He and costar Haddish also serve as producers.

“I’m so grateful to get the chance to bring this charming and beautiful story to life,” Crystal said in a statement. “To write this with Alan was a joy, and to have Tiffany as my costar is fantastic. The generational differences in our comedy will be great to play with. She’s explosively funny and genuinely human at the same time. [I’m] excited to explore all our possibilities together.”

Production is set to begin this October in New York City, however, a release date has yet to be announced.
