Chanel Celaya is the latest to join the Charlie Day/Ice Cube-led comedy FIST FIGHT, rounding out the exceptional cast. Christina Hendricks, Dean Norris, Jillian Bell, and Tracy Morgan make up the cast of the schoolyard brawl pic.
Richie Keen is directing the film from a script by Hit List and Black List scribes Evan Susser and Van Robichaux. Fist Fight takes place at a rundown school where an amiable English teacher (Day) is challenged to an after-school fight by one of his fellow educators (Cube) who thinks that he’s trying to get him fired.
Shawn Levy is producing with New Girl star Max Greenfield and John Rickard. Day is executive producing with Dan Cohen, Billy Rosenberg, and Marty Ewing. Production is set to start this month in Atlanta.
Celaya previously appeared in 21 Jump Street and Transformers: Age of Extinction. In Fist Fight, Celaya will take on the role of Katie, a teacher at the school.
She’s repped by ICM and Sanka Entertainment.
