Deadline is exclusively reporting that Ashanti is set to produce and star in the romantic comedy The Plus One.
The singer and actress (whose credits include John Tucker Must Die and Army Wives) will be playing the role of Lizzie, whose only request of her ‘Male of Honor’ Marshall is that he doesn’t bring his hated ex Marie to her destination wedding. But lovesick Marshall brings her as his plus one, and Marie does everything in her power to wreck Lizzie’s big day.
The film is written by Austin H. Garces and Brendan Bradley, with Danny Chan, Danny Roth, David Yates and Demetrius Spencer serving as producers, while Tina Douglas, Stephan Dweck and Almost Never Films are executive producing.
The report also states that the director and additional casting for the project are yet to be revealed, though production is scheduled to commence in Florida this coming December.
