Eva Noblezada is celebrating an Easter moment…
The 25-year-old half-Mexican American actress, singer and Broadway star has joined the cast of the Amblin Partners family comedy, Easter Sunday, which is based on the stand-up comedy and life experiences of comedy star Jo Koy and is set around a family gathering to celebrate Easter Sunday.
Noblezada will play Ruth, a friend of one of the characters, Junior.
Jay Chandrasekhar will direct with Ken Cheng penning the script.
The studio is eyeing a production start this spring.
Noblezada made her Broadway debut as the titular role in the revival of Miss Saigon, which earned her a Tony Award nomination for “Best Actress in a Leading Role in a Musical.”
She also starred in Hadestown, which made her one of just a handful of actors to receive Tony nominations for their first two Broadway roles.
She received a Grammy Award for “Best Musical Theater Album” for her work on the show.
Noblezada recently made her feature film debut in the critically acclaimed film Yellow Rose.
