Martin not only produced the film but she also stars in the comedy with Insecure creator Issa Rae. Little is an adaptation of Tom Hanks’ 1988 film Big. 

Writer Tracy Y. Oliver said she worked on the pitch for this movie with the then-11-year-old actress.

The trailer for the film was released this week. The film is about a woman named Jordan Sanders (Regina Hall) who is cursed and transformed into her 13-year-old self (Martin).

Martin spoke to ET’s Courtney Tezeno about becoming a producer before the movie was shot. “This is the first movie I have in front of the camera and behind the camera. And it’s not gonna be my last.”

Little opens in theaters April 12.
