According to the very trusty Hollywood Reporter, Paula may have a new film soon! The best news of all is it would see our girl in a leading role!
Paula Patton, now onscreen in Just Wright, is in negotiations to topline the wedding-themed comedy Jumping the Broom. Television helmer Salim Akil is making his feature directorial debut on the project, which is slated to start shooting in the summer in Nova Scotia.
Written by Arlene Gibbs and Elizabeth Hunter, the film follows the clash of two black families from opposite ends of the socioeconomic background at a weekend wedding in Martha’s Vineyard. Patton would play the female lead of the wealthy family.
Bishop T.D. Jakes, Curtis Wallace, Tracey Edmonds, Glendon Palmer and Elizabeth Hunter are producing. Hunter did a recent polish on the script.
If the project comes together, it likely would go out through the Sony label.
