Taye Diggs, Morris Chestnut, Djimon Hounsou, Tia Mowry, Lauren London, and Trey Songz are all in contention for parts playwright/director David E. Talbert‘s rom-com, Baggage Claim, according to Shadow and Act.
With Paula Patton, Derek Luke, and Octavia Spencer already on board, the film is based on Talbert’s best-selling debut novel about a flight attendant with thirty days and thirty thousand miles to find a husband.
With her mother having just tied the knot for a record-breaking fourth time and her baby sister, Sheree, rushing to jump the broom, five-time maid of honor Montana is dangerously close to becoming not only the oldest, but the only woman in her entire family never to be married.
Having convinced herself that there’s no way in heaven or hell she’s showing up at her sister’s Christmas Eve engagement party without a prospect of her own, Montana concocts her wildest and most romantically ridiculous plan yet: a thirty-day, thirty-thousand-mile trek in search of a husband.
Will it be Damon Diesel, a young hip-hop producer whose motto is “Making the green scream and the dolla holla!”? Or will she win over the Reverend Curtis P. Merewether, pastor and founder of Greater House of Deliverance, Tabernacle of Praise, Worship, and Miracles? Of course Langston Jefferson Battle III, superattorney turned city councilman, needs a wife now that his sights are set on the United States Congress. Or perhaps her lifelong mate is Quinton Jamison, a multimillionaire textile guru twenty years her senior. Only time — or the lack of it — will tell.
