Actress Sanaa Lathan took to social media earlier today to unveil the official poster for her latest film The Perfect Guy, which co-stars Morris Chestnut and Michael Ealy.
The psychological thriller opens September 11, and is expected to get a similar roll out as Think Like a Man and it’s sequel, which held online giveaways and in theatre meet and greets to boost opening week ticket sells.
Actress Sanaa Lathan unveiled her new 60’s inspired hairstyle on Instagram last night, while simultaneously throwing in a bit of promo for her upcoming film with Michael Ealy (The Following) and Morris Chestnut (Rosewood).
The three powerhouse actors will appear in The Perfect Guy this fall, and are rumored to be shooting the cover of a very popular magazine, which my money says will most likely be Ebony or Essence.
It’s official, guys ! Code Black Entertainment has acquired the rights to author Omar Tyree’s Flyy Girl trilogy, and have brought in actress Sanaa Lathan to take on the lead role of Tracy Ellinson.
Via press release we also learned that Sanna will act as executive producer of the film, and that Precious screenwriter Geoffrey Fletcher has been tapped to pen the script.
“So many people have grown up on this series and I’m looking forward to bringing Tracy Ellison’s story to life through film, Sanaa said in her official statement. “It’s my hope to continue to help bring diverse stories to the big screen.”
Just days after wondering what Sanaa Lathan has been up to, we have our answer. She, Michael Ealy and Morris Chestnut have been low-key shooting a romantic thriller for Sony/Screen Gems titled The Perfect Guy.
I actually gave a small synopsis of the film in my previous post, but had no idea the project had wrapped shooting until the trailer landed in my inbox last night.
Where has Sanaa Lathan been hiding these days? The former Cleveland Show actress hasn’t been seen much since her last TV venture, the Starz drama Boss, was canceled last year.
Sanaa had previously been rumored to make an appearance on another Staz show, last year’s break-out Power, but those rumors turned out to be false.
So what has Sanaa been up to lately? Well, a quick glance at her IMDB page shows her name attached to several independent films, including The Perfect Guy which co-stars Michael Ealy as a sexy IT expert who turns out to have a very dark side.
Sanaa Lathan is currently featured in the March edition of Pride Magazine ((Pride is like the U.K. version of Essence Magazine)). The actress is currently in London playing the role of Maggie in the revival of “Cat On A Hot Tin Roof.” Sanaa’s shoot was done inside the Royal Opera House where “Cat” is playing and features actual costumes the actress wears in her role.
Sanaa Lathan is the latest Brown Sista to join the Twitter revolution. The sista tweeted her first message today and seems to already be a pro. Sanaa is presently gearing up for the fall premiere of The Cleveland Show and will be at Comic Con today, along with her co-star on the show, Reagan Gomez Preston.
Check the sista out below sending out her first twitter pic; herself with the police officer who reportedly pulled over her driver for speeding. From the looks of this pic- I doubt the driver got a ticket. Sanaa clearly turned on that Brown Sista charm.
