MGM has acquired IS HE THE ONE from Fox 2000 and Kerry Washington is in talks to star. The romantic comedy has been in the works since 2010 at Fox with Katherine Heigl, Beyonce, Elizabeth Allen and Zoe Saldana each attached or rumored to be starring in the project. It centers on a woman who has flashbacks about three different men while walking down the aisle at her wedding, making us wonder which one will be waiting for her at the altar. Malcolm D. Lee will direct from a script penned by DJ Richardson and Michelle Morgan. Todd Garner has signed on to produce.
Washington got her start with smaller roles in films like “Save the Last Dance,” “Ray,” and “Mr. & Mrs. Smith.” From there, she went on to star in “The Last King of Scotland,” “Fantastic 4: Rise of the Silver Surfer,” and “Django Unchained.” Perhaps her best known role is the one she is currently playing, Olivia Pope on ABC’s hit political drama “Scandal.”
