Kofi Siriboe has landed the lead role in an upcoming film from Charles D. King’s MACRO.
Really Love will be helmed by Angel Kristi Williams in her feature directorial debut.
Felicia A. Pride co-wrote the script with Williams.
MACRO is financing and producing the film, brought there by producer Mel Jones.
The film is set in a gentrifying Washington D.C. and follows a rising black painter (Siriboe) who tries to break into the competitive art world while balancing a whirlwind romance he never expected.
Jones, King, Kim Roth and Aaliyah Williams are producing. MACRO’s Poppy Hanks, Latisha Fortune, Sanford Grimes, Stephanie Allain, Kim Coleman and Pride are executive producers.
The film will begin shooting later this summer in Baltimore and D.C.
Deadline first reported the news.
