Issa Rae & LaKeith Stanfield to Star in “The Photograph”

The Sorry to Bother You star and Insecure creator join The Photograph. 

The two have been tapped to star side-by-side in the romantic comedy. Set to direct is Everything, Everything helmer Stella Maghie from her own script. Word is that execs at Universal were so impressed with her original script that they paid big to have it.

The Photograph is described for now only as a rom-com centered on intertwining love stories in the past and present. 

Meghie who made her directorial debut in 2016 with Jean of the Joneses will also executive produce alongside Rae. Will Packer will produce with James Lopez under his company Will Packer Productions and Mika Pryce will oversee production for Universal.
