EXCLUSIVE: Three actors set for 'Peeples'
Kerry Washington, Craig Robinson, David Alan Grier join film
Kerry Washington, Craig Robinson and David Alan Grier have been cast in the 34th Street Films comedy "We the Peeples."
Tina Gordon Chism ("Drumline") wrote the screenplay and will direct for the first time. The story follows what happens when a child psychologist (Robinson) surprises his girlfriend (Washington) by showing up at her political family's annual get-together at their Sag Harbor vacation home only to find them desperately in need of therapy.
34th Street's Matt Moore is producing along with Tyler Perry Studios president Ozzie Areu, Paul Hall and Stephanie Allain. Lionsgate will release the film, which starts shooting in Connecticut in November.
Washington, repped by CAA and Washington Square Arts, recently starred in the Sundance premiere "Night Catches Us," "Mother and Child" and "Lakeview Terrace." She also stars in Perry's adaptation of "For Colored Girls," which Lionsgate releases in November.
Repped by UTA and 3 Arts, Robinson recently appeared in "Hot Tub Time Machine," "The Goods: Live Hard, Sell Hard" and "Zack and Miri Make a Porno."
Grier, repped by Paradigm and Roar, last appeared in "Astro Boy," "Dance Flick" and "An American Carol." He was recently nominated for a Tony Award for starring in David Mamet's "Race" on Broadway.
