Ashanti is trying to keep her dream wedding from falling apart in the upcoming comedy, The Plus One.
The trailer shows how difficult it is for Ashanti’s character Lizzie to keep her sanity and her wedding intact as she faces off against the biggest threat to her wedding, her best friend’s impossible wedding guest. According to the official description:
Lizzie (Ashanti) is looking to have the perfect destination wedding thanks to her doating father (Cedric the Entertainer) but her carefully laid plans are thrown into disarray when her “man-of-honor”, Marshall (Jonathan Bennett), brings his “ex-from-hell”, Marie. It is going to take an all-out effort from Lizzie’s friends and family to keep Lizzie from losing her mind as her “happily ever after” is faced with ruin. THE PLUS ONE is an uproarious and charming romantic comedy.
The film also stars Michelle Hurd, B.J. Britt, Cassandra Scerbo, Julissa Bermudez, Wesley Armstrong and Brendan Bradley. Erik White directs from a screenplay and story by Brendan Andolsek Bradley and Austin Highsmith Graces. Danny Roth, Demetrius Spencer, John Mehrer, Danny Chan, Tina Douglas and Stephan Dweck serve as producers.
The Plus One was announced as in production in 2021, with filming beginning that December.
