The new movie, which is due to hit our screens on September 17, 2021, has some very familiar faces in the cast.
She will be joined on set with the likes of Kevin Hart, Woody Harrelson, and Ellen Barkin.
Very little is known about the plot other than a deadly assassin and screw-up are made to join forces after they are mistaken for one another at an Airbnb.

Meanwhile, The Flight Attendant is set to premiere on HBO Max on November 26, 2020.
The role is a far stretch Kaley’s usual comedic roles and will follow the story of Cassie, a flight attendant who wakes up next to a dead body after a wild night of partying.
Speaking to US Weekly about the project, Kaley said: “When I read the book description, I got a chill down my arms. It felt like a good mix of drama and dark comedy. Plus, a complicated female character is a dream role.
“I love making people laugh, but it’s been an incredible experience working my dramatic muscles.
“This cast is so experienced and has surrounded me with so much support. They make me feel like I can do anything.”
Since leaving the role of Penny in May 2016, Kaley has also taken on the voice of Harley Quinn in the animated television series based on the DC Comics character of the same name.
But the future of series is hanging in the balance after the show’s writer Dean Lorey admitted on Twitter that he has no idea what the future holds.
Responding to a fan, he said: “We’d love to make one [a new series]! We’re still waiting to hear something from HBOmax. It was so much fun to work on (Bane!) and we have a lot more story to tell.”
