More by this author

Queen Latifah has been cast in the upcoming film “Just Wright,” a romantic comedy that had been set up six years ago at Disney, but was put into turnaround and picked up by Fox Searchlight, reports Variety.

The actress will play a physical therapist who falls in love with a basketball player while helping him recover from a career-threatening injury.

Searchlight, which recently teamed with Latifah on “The Secret Life of Bees,” is eyeing a late May start date. Latifah and her Flavor Unit partner Shakim Compere are producing alongside Debra Martin Chase.

“Wright” follows Paramount’s “Last Holiday” as the second romantic comedy that Latifah has toplined.
