The upcoming movie centers around parents—Dana (Good) and Curtis (Cross)—embarking on a high-stakes mission to find their daughter Alicia (Wright), who went missing after she snuck out to attend a party, according to a press release.

Alicia's "bout with teenage rebellion," per the release, then "quickly escalates into a widespread search party spearheaded by Dana and the police."

As for Karen, the police officer will help "investigate the case," while maintaining a "personal connection to the story."

Currently, Ariana is hot off of season 10 of Vanderpump Ruleswhere it was revealed her ex-boyfriend of nine years, Tom Sandoval was having an affair with fellow cast member Raquel Leviss.


But these days, Ariana is as good as gold. Back in March, the Something About Her co-owner thanked her supporters for the "outpouring of love" she's received.

"So many of my closest friends are also grieving this loss right now and reeling from this betrayal on so many levels," she wrote on Instagram at the time. "I am so f--king lucky to have the best support system in the world and I hope I can repay every single person for the love you have shown me. What doesn't kill me better run."
