Wanuri Kahiu, a Kenyan film director behind the renowned Kenyan film 'Rafiki ', has signed up for a new feature film project with Netflix. Wanuri will direct the time-bending drama titled 'Plus/Minus' that will star 'Riverdale' star Lili Reinhart.

Reinhart will star as Natalie, whose life has diverged into two parallel realities on the eve of her college graduation. In one, she becomes pregnant and must navigate motherhood as a young adult, while in another reality, she moves to L.A. to pursue her career. In both realities throughout her 20s, Natalie experiences life-changing love, devastating heartbreak, and rediscovers herself.

Reinhart will also serve as an executive producer. Wanuri Kahiu took to social media, particularly Twitter, to express her excitement over teaming up with the 'Riverdale' sensation.

"Very excited to be joining @lilireinhart on this epic journey of celebrating womanhood in all its mess, laughter, love, heartbreak, and joy! Yay @netflix!" she tweeted Sunday.

A release date for 'Plus/Minus' is yet to be announced.
