According to industry website Deadline, the news is that actress Kerry Washington is signing on for a new romantic comedy titled Is He The One to be directed by Malcolm Lee. Lee, best know for his very successful films The Best Man and The Best Man Holiday seems to have handed over the reins of writing to someone else.
Check out the story below:
EXCLUSIVE: MGM has acquired Is He The One, a romantic comedy vehicle for Emmy-nominated Scandal star Kerry Washington. The film will be directed by Malcolm D. Lee, who is coming off the hits The Best Man and The Best Man Holiday. The script is by DJ Richardson and Michelle Morgan (Girl Most Likely). Todd Garner is producing.
The comedy begins with a woman dressing for her wedding, and it ends with a walk down the aisle. Washington plays the bride, and the story is told in flashbacks that cycle through the three major relationships of her life. The big question: Who’s at the end of that final walk, waiting for her at the altar? The film is being overseen by MGM Motion Picture Group President Jonathan Glickman and SVP Cassidy Lange. Washington, whose most recent major studio film was the Quentin Tarantino-directed Django Unchained, is repped by Kathy Atkinson at Washington Square Arts, CAA and attorney Gretchen Bruggeman Rush. Lee is repped by Paradigm.
