In February 2014, Universal announced that director Malcolm D. Lee and producer Will Packer would be collaborating on an upcoming film tentatively titled Girls Trip with South Park writer Erica Rivinoja attached to write the script. In May 2016, Universal set a release date of August 11, 2017 for the film. It was also reported that Regina Hall would star in the film and Kenya Barris and Tracy Oliver were rewriting the script. Queen Latifah and Jada Pinkett Smith joined the cast in early June 2016 with Larenz Tate joining the cast later that month. The film's release date was pushed up to July 21, 2017 as principal photography began in late June 2016 in New Orleans, Louisiana and included filming at the 2016 Essence Music Festival.
