This is going to be amazing– a chance to swoon over the First Couple and their love in a movie? Count us in!
News dropped earlier today that Parker Sawyers and Tika Sumpter will be starring a young Barack Obama and Michelle Robinson in the movie Southside With You.
According to Variety:
The film covers the eventful date in 1989, when a young associate named Barack Obama was trying to woo lawyer Michelle Robinson on a summer afternoon and evening, which took them through the Art Institute of Chicago, a screening of Spike Lee’s “Do the Right Thing” and their first kiss outside of an ice cream parlor.
Sawyers recently completed Oliver Stone’s “Snowden” and is about to shoot a supporting role in the feature “The Autopsy of Jane Doe” alongside Brian Cox and Emile Hirsch.
Shooting on the film begins in Chicago in August and we can’t wait to see it.
