Zendaya is set to star in the upcoming thriller film A White Lie!

The K.C. Undercover actress will also produce the movie alongside Reese Witherspoon through Reese‘s motion picture company Hello Sunshine, Variety reports.

Zendaya will play the first African-American woman to graduate from Vassar College.

The film is based on Karin Tanabe‘s book “The Gilded Years,” which tells “the true story of Anita Hemmings, a light-skinned, African-American woman who was the descendant of slaves and passed as white so she could attend Vassar during the 1890s. She’s pulled into her elite world where she’s treated as a wealthy, educated white woman who finds romance with a moneyed Harvard student.”
