We can’t get enough of Yara Shahidi!

She is killing it in grown-ish and let’s face it… she’s gorgeous!

According to Deadline, Yara Shahidi is currently in talks to star in leading role of a possible film adaptation of The Sun Is Also A Star.  

The book was originally penned by author Nicola Yoon novel and centers on a teenage daughter of immigrant parents who falls in love with a boy 12 hours before her family is set to be deported to Jamaica.

Girls Trip writer Tracy Oliver will write the film adaptation.


Natasha: I’m a girl who believes in science and facts. Not fate. Not destiny. Or dreams that will never come true. I’m definitely not the kind of girl who meets a cute boy on a crowded New York City street and falls in love with him. Not when my family is twelve hours away from being deported to Jamaica. Falling in love with him won’t be my story.

Daniel: I’ve always been the good son, the good student, living up to my parents’ high expectations. Never the poet. Or the dreamer. But when I see her, I forget about all that. Something about Natasha makes me think that fate has something much more extraordinary in store—for both of us.

The Universe: Every moment in our lives has brought us to this single moment. A million futures lie before us. Which one will come true?
