With his writing partner Jeannie Roshar, Gary Anthony Williams (known for providing the voice of Uncle Ruckus on The Boondocks, for his work on Weeds and Boston Legal, and much more) has sold an interracial romantic comedy feature pitch to Lionsgate, titled I Own You.
Lionsgate Buys Interracial Comedy Feature Pitch From Gary Anthony Williams, Jeannie Roshar
Centered on the peaks and valleys of an interracial couple, I Own You is said to be based on a 2008 short film of the same name that the duo also wrote and starred, with Anthony Williams directing.
Whether Williams will also direct this feature film adaptation of the short, remains to be see. Currently, there’s no director attached.
It’s not even a definite that Williams and Roshar will reprise their roles in the feature. What’s certain is that they’ll pen the script for it.
Williams and Roshar co-founded the LA Comedy Shorts Festival, by the way.
