Storm & Teyana Team Up

Storm Reid and Teyana Taylor will be working together on the movie ‘Get Life.’

Fresh off her first Emmy award win, Storm Reid is already gearing up for her next role. The young actress will star in the movie Get Lite, which will be directed by actress/singer Teyana Taylor.

Many fans have been aware that these two powerhouses have graced large and small screens throughout their careers, but this is a different shining light that the pair are stepping into. Taylor’s directorial debut signifies a major milestone in her career and creative direction that she’s been working towards. While Reid has secured the starring role in the upcoming project, she’ll also be co-producing through her own production company: A Seed & Wings. Kenya Barris, Hollywood producer and director, will also co-produce under his company, Khalabo Ink Society.

After Taylor’s critically acclaimed performance in A Thousand And One that premiered at last year’s Sundance Film Festival, fans are very pleased that this upcoming film Get Lite is centered around New York City culture. According to, “The film follows a New York City teenager whose life takes a dramatic turn when he becomes enamored with a magnetic beatmaker (portrayed by Reid). She persuades him to join her Litefeet dance crew, which presents a dilemma: stay focused on his studies, or embrace his revived passion for dance.”

Additional details regarding the film and premiere dates have not yet been released, but production has been confirmed.
