Queen Latifah to Find Romance With Common


Queen Latifah is preparing to hate neither the player nor the game in her next project, Just Wright, a romance in which she'll star opposite Common. Latifah's character is "a sports trainer who finds herself falling in love with a professional basketball player while rehabilitating him from a career-threatening injury."

I'm interested to see Queen Latifah play one half of a lead couple in a romantic movie — more often than not, she plays a sassy supporting character. With the right (or "Wright" . . . oh, man, that's the Friday talking) material, she can be really engaging onscreen. I wonder what the dynamics will be like between Latifah and Common. Do you think they make a good movie couple?

this makes me really happy! i think it's great to see a woman in a starring role who doesn't fit the hollywood stereotype for a romcom lead. i hope the movie's written well, funny, not too predictable, etc and we see more actresses of all sizes and colors in leading roles.
