Who‚Äôs ready for a movie about how Barack Obama met Michelle? Nobody raised their hand? Weird‚Ä¶
Anyway, there is a movie being made about their first date tentatively titled, ‚ÄúSouthside with You‚ÄĚ that will begin filming in August and set to hit theaters some time in 2016.
And the role of young Barack Obama in this sure-to-be delightful take on the young community organizer in love will be played by Parker Sawyers:
Sawyers had roles in ‚ÄúZero Dark Thirty‚ÄĚ and ‚ÄúJack Ryan: Shadow Recruit,‚ÄĚ among others.
Michelle will be played by¬†Tika Sumpter:
Sumpter is well known for her appearances on television and in the movies including ‚ÄúThe Haves and Have Nots,‚ÄĚ ‚ÄúGossip Girls,‚ÄĚ ¬†and last year starring alongside Kevin Hart and Ice Cube in ‚ÄúRide Along.‚ÄĚ
So, do they give this film an Oscar now or do they wait until it has finished filming?
