In addition to the 'Ocean's 8' star and the 'Girls Trip' actress, 'Breaking News in Yuba County' reportedly has Juliette Lewis, Ellen Barkin and Wanda Sykes in advanced negotiations.

AceShowbiz - Awkwafina and Regina Hall have been added to the all-star cast of "The Help" director Tate Taylor's new movie, "Breaking News in Yuba County".

Mila Kunis and Allison Janney will lead the crime drama, which is set to start production in Mississippi next month (June 2019).

According to Deadline sources, Oscar winner Janney will portray a woman who catches her husband in bed with another woman. The big surprise leads to a heart attack, which kills him. After burying his body, she begins to take advantage of the growing celebrity status that comes from having a missing husband, but finds herself in over her head, dodging cops and criminals, all while trying to hide the truth, especially from her half-sister, played by Kunis - a local news anchor, desperate for a big story story, and Hall's determined local police detective.

Juliette Lewis, Ellen Barkin and Kunis' "Bad Moms" co-star Wanda Sykes are also reportedly in advanced negotiations to join the cast.

Laura Dern was attached to the project but has since dropped out due to a scheduling conflict.
