Yvonne Orji Will Star In the Upcoming Sci-Fi Thriller 'Spontaneous'

The "Insecure" star is about to take over the big screen.

Insecure breakout star Yvonne Orji, will star in a new sci-fi movie from Awesomeness films, reports The Hollywood Reporter.

The multitalented actor and comedian will play Special Agent Rosetti in the upcoming film Spontaneous, and from what we know so far about the film, it sounds like it'll be quite the thriller.

Here's a synopsis of the film via Shadow and Act:

The film's description: Mara Carlye (Langford), whose life is forever changed when students in her senior class literally explode for no discernible reason. As students continue to pop like blood-filled balloons and the town descends into both chaos and apathy, Mara and her friends stay close together as they await possible combustion – wondering what part of life is worth living if it might end suddenly.

The film will also star Piper Perabo and Rob Huebel, Hayley Law, Charlie Plummer and Katherine Langford.

Last September it was announced that Orji will star alongside Kevin Hart and another one of our personal favorites, Tiffany Haddish, in the upcoming comedy Night School.

We can't wait to see Orji shine and the big screen like the star she is.

A 7.1-magnitude earthquake, which rattled Mexico City on September 19, was felt as far down as Zapotalito, and the very next morning, its Black, Indigenous and poor Mestizo residents, who depend on the area's handful of lagoons for food and commerce, woke up to an awful smell and that terrible scene of floating fish.
