Hollywood powerhouse Queen Latifah is all set to top her hilarious performance in Bringing Down The House by teaming up with MATRIX babe JADA PINKETT SMITH.

The busty rapper will join Will Smith's sexy wife as a loud-mouthed police detective in an action-comedy set up at Paramount Pictures, tentatively called BAD GIRLS.

The plotline for the project is being kept under wraps, and a screenwriter is expected to come aboard shortly.

And the pair will be getting some serious support - superstar Will is on board as a producer, via his OVERBROOK ENTERTAINMENT banner.

After her nomination-garnering performance in Chicago, Latifah's Hollywood star keeps rising higher - she's next lined up for the BARBERSHOP spin-off Beauty Shop, and is soon to shoot new film TAXI.
