The cast of The School for Good and Evil has got new additions and fine ones at that.
Joining Charlize Theron and Kerry Washington who joined the series last month, alongside streaming giant Netflix, director Paul Feig announced Oscar nominated actor Laurence Fishburne (The Matrix trilogy) and Michelle Yeoh (Crazy Rich Asians) have been added as cast members to the adaptation of Soman Chainani‘s fantasy novel series.
The School for Good and Evil book series, being adapted by David Magee (Life of Pi, Mary Poppins Returns, Finding Neverland) and Laura Solon (Office Christmas Party, Let It Snow), offers its official synopsis:
Best friends Sophie and Agatha are about to discover where fairytale legacies go to school: the School for Good and Evil, where ordinary boys and girls are trained to be fairy tale heroes and villains. With her princess ambitions, Sophie knows she’ll be picked for the School for Good and join the ranks of past students like Cinderella and Snow White. Meanwhile, Agatha, with her grim aesthetic and wicked cat, seems a natural fit for the villains in the School for Evil. Yet soon the girls find their fortunes reversed: Sophie is dropped into the School for Evil, Agatha into the School for Good. But what if the mistake is the first clue to discovering who Sophie and Agatha really are? Their friendship will be put to the test in this thrilling and comedic story where the only way out of a fairy tale is to live through one.
