Finally, a mainstream black film that has nothing to do with Tyler Perry!
Tracey E. Edmonds and T.D. Jakes have teamed up to produce the new romantic comedy, Jumping the Broom. The film, which hits theaters in May, features an all-star cast of Hollywood heavyweights.
Set in Martha’s Vineyard, Jumping the Broom explores what happens when two people from different sides of the tracks fall in love. Although they are ready to spend their lives together, when they meet each other’s families the couple begins to question if they are soul mates. Yes, the story has been done to death, but from the looks of the trailer, the film promises to be an entertaining ride.
Angela Bassett, Loretta Devine, Paula Patton, Mike Epps, Tasha Smith, Laz Alonzo, Pooch Hall, Meagan Good, and Romeo Miller team up to star in the Salim Akil-directed film.
