Jada Pinkett Smith has landed a significant role in a Netflix film.

Jada Pinkett Smith has a new movie role lined up, and she’s also getting into the streaming game.

Smith has joined Redd Zone, a new Netflix drama written by Matthew A Cherry and Kristin Layne Tucker, according to Deadline.

“I wanted to appear in that manner for Lana.”

Their stories would be kept hidden.

Who’d have guessed I’d still be working as a woman at this point, out in the cow pasture?
