Issa Rae and LaKeith Stanfield are teaming up to tell intersecting love stories from the past and the present in the upcoming Will Packer production, The Photograph.
The romantic drama will be directed and executive produced by Everything, Everything’sStella Meghie, who penned the screenplay. Meghie has previously worked with Rae on Insecure.
Rae may be an exceptional example of what happens when Black women step up behind the scenes, but her work as a showrunner hasn’t prevented her acting career from taking off.
Along with The Photograph, she’s also set to co-star in Marsai Martin’s record-breaking comedy Little, out next month, showed range in the adaptation of The Hate U Give, and recently completed production on the romantic comedy The Lovebirds.
Stanfield followed up his turn in the critical darling Sorry To Bother You with appearances in the mystery Knives Out and the comedy Uncut Gems.
Two of our favorite talents in a love story told by a Black woman? Here for it!
