Fox Searchlight just announced, via Twitter, that playwright/director David E. Talbert’s rom-com, Baggage Claim, will open in theaters on October 25, 2013.
The loaded cast includes Paula Patton, Derek Luke, Octavia Spencer, Taye Diggs, Trey Songz, Jill Scott, J Cole, Djimon Hounsou, Adam Brody, Morris Chestnut, Lauren London, Christina Milian, Tia Mowry and Terrence J.
Based on Talbert’s best-selling debut novel about a flight attendant with thirty days and thirty thousand miles to find a husband, the synopsis for Baggage Claim reads:
Pledging to keep herself from being the oldest and the only woman in her entire family never to wed, Montana embarks on a thirty-day, thirty-thousand-mile expedition to charm a potential suitor into becoming her fiancé. Whom will she choose? Damon Diesel, a P. Diddy wannabe; Reverend Curtis P. Merewether, pastor of Greater House of Deliverance, Tabernacle of Praise, Worship, and Miracles; pompous attorney-turned-councilman Langston Jefferson Battle III; or Quinton Jamison, a multimillionaire who’s twenty years her senior?
Patton leads the ensemble cast, starring as our husband-seeking flight attendant.
This will be Talbert’s first theatrically-released film since 2008’s First Sunday.
Now we wait to see that first trailer for Baggage Claim.
