Actor-comedian Tiffany Haddish is set to portray former US track and field athlete Florence Griffith Joyner in an upcoming biopic.
Known as Flo-Jo, Florence helped popularise track and field in the US with her record-breaking Olympic run and flashy personality and style.
Many of the records that Florence set in the 1988 Olympics, include those in the 100 m and 200 m. She died in 1998 at the age of 38 of an epileptic seizure.
According to Variety, Tiffany will also produce the yet-to-be titled movie alongside Game1 Co-CEO’s Basil Iwanyk and Greg Economou.
Florence’s widower and former coach, Al Joyner, will serve as a producer and creative consultant on the project.
