Awkwafina and Karen Gillan set to star in action-comedy 'Shelley'.

Awkwafina and Karen Gillan are set to reunite for an action-comedy film entitled Shelly, which is described as "Mean Girls meets Barry".

Jude Weng is set to direct the movie, with a script by Michael Doneger and Liz Storm.

Michael Doneger and Liz Storm wrote the script, which takes place a decade after an embarrassing prom prank ran Shelly Wheeler (Awkwafina) out of town and so hardened her heart that she became an ice-cold hit-woman. Revenge threatens to be sweet when she learns her next target is her former high school tormentor, Dianna Park (Gillan). But when Dianna unexpectedly befriends Shelly, the assassin finds herself in with the cool crowd, protecting her old nemesis against another hit crew hired to kill them both... According to Deadline, the pitch on this one is TV's Barry meets Mean Girls.
