Working with Tiffany has been a great pleasure – she is incredibly dedicated, focused, and committed to portraying the spirit of Florence accurately, whose legacy of making a difference in the world will live on for generations to come.

“I hope that this film touches all who see it and inspires people to be the change the world so desperately needs right now!”

We are thrilled to partner with Tiffany on such an important project. Tiffany has established herself as one of the greatest entertainers in the world today – helping her tell the story of her idol Flo-Jo is an amazing honour and privilege” says Basil Iwanyk.

While Tifanny is “looking forward to telling Flo-Jo’s story the way it should be told. My goal with this film is making sure that younger generations know my ‘she-ro’ Flo-Jo, the fastest woman in the world to this day, existed.”

According to Deadline, a documentary series and a podcast related to the biopic are being produced by Tiffany Haddish and game1. Melanie Clark of She Ready Productions will also produce, while Jonathan Fuhrman of Thunder Road Pictures will executive produce.
