Following the announcement of a brand new film she’s set to star in alongside Regina Hall and Marsai Martin, Issa Rae remains booked and busy as she will be starring in yet another film, this time alongside Kumail Nanjiani.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, ‘The Lovebirds’, written by Aaron Abrams, Brendan Gall, and Martin Gero, is a romantic comedy that centers on a couple on the brink of a breakup. The pair subsequently become embroiled in a bizarre and hijinks-filled murder mystery, and as they get close to clearing their names and solving the case, the twosome needs to figure out how they, and their relationship, can survive the night.
The Paramount project goes into production at the end of this month with Michael Showalter set to direct. Showalter previously directed Nanjiani on the set of the 2017 film ‘The Big Sick’. Nanjiani, Rae, and Showalter are also serving as executive producers.
Coming to theaters on April 12th will be a new body-switching comedy film starring Regina Hall, Issa Rae, and 14-year-old ‘Black-ish’ actress Marsai Martin. It was recently announced that with the film, titled ‘Little’, Martin would become the youngest black executive producer in Hollywood history. Read more here.
