Kerry Washington and Charlize Theron have joined the stellar line-up for Paul Feig's new Netflix movie, which is based on a best-selling book from Soman Chainani.

The School for Good and Evil follows best friends Sophie (Sophia Anne Caruso) and Agatha (Sofia Wylie), who are set to sign-up for schools which have previously educated famous fairytale characters.

Sophie plans to join in the School of Good to join alums such as Cinderella and Snow White, whilst Agatha knows she's fit for the Evil School.

However, the two friends find their fortunes reversed, and they are each forced to discover who they really are.

Taking to Twitter, Feig wrote: "I know what school I'm applying to! So thrilled to welcome Charlize Theron and Kerry Washington to the School for Good and Evil! Everyone, prepare to get schooled! @CharlizeAfrica @kerrywashington @netflix @NetflixFilm (sic)"

Chainani's 2013 book is a New York Times bestseller and has sold over 2.5 million copies, along with being translated into 30 languages.

The School for Good and Evil is tipped for release  in 2022.
