Actor Taye Diggs, Morris Chestnut, Trey Songz, Lauren London, Tia Mowry and Djimon Hounsou are all up for a new role on David E. Talbert’s playwright and directed rom-com, “Baggage Claim” for Fox Searchlight.
The film has already cast Paula Patton, Derek Luke and Octavia Spencer, with Paula playing the husband-seeking flight attendant. The production exec’s are currently open to public opinions on who Taye, Morris, Trey, Lauren, Tia and Djimon should play. But that’s only if you’ve read the book.
Here’s the synopsis for Baggage Claim:
“Pledging to keep herself from being the oldest and the only woman in her entire family never to wed, Montana embarks on a thirty-day, thirty-thousand-mile expedition to charm a potential suitor into becoming her fiancé. Whom will she choose? Damon Diesel, a P. Diddy wannabe; Reverend Curtis P. Merewether, pastor of Greater House of Deliverance, Tabernacle of Praise, Worship, and Miracles; pompous attorney-turned-councilman Langston Jefferson Battle III; or Quinton Jamison, a multimillionaire who’s twenty years her senior?”
According to Shadow and Act, the cast is expected to be finalized very soon, as the project is scheduled to begin principal photography in October.
