Everyone’s favorite “fixer” is returning to the big screen, this time in a leading role. Scandal lead Kerry Washington will star in an upcoming romantic comedy titled Is He The One.
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?
Sounds like it has potential and might be interesting to see a complex, Black woman character on-screen.
Is He The One was written by DJ Richardson and Michelle Morgan—who penned the 2012 Kristin Wiig vehicle, Girl Most Likely. The film will be directed by Malcolm D Lee writer and director of The Best Man and The Best Man Holiday, which was a was a box-office gold.
One aspect of this project that will be particularly interesting is whether or not it will be a quote unquote, black film—that is, a film with a primarily black cast.
No word on who will play her potential beaus or when production will begin, but this is definitely exciting news.
