Taraji P. Henson and Tika Sumpter to Star in ‘Acrimony’
Tika Sumpter is set to star in the upcoming Tyler Perry film Acrimony. The dramedy co-stars Taraji P. Henson and reportedly started principal shooting in Pittsburgh last fall. Not much is known about the storyline or the rest of the supporting cast, though we do know first-time director, Rosie Olivia, has been chosen to helm the project.
Acrimony is part of a two-picture distribution deal Perry signed with Lionsgate after the successful release of last year’s Boo! A Madea Halloween.
In addition to her role in Acrimony, Tika stars in the OWN drama The Haves and Have Nots. She’ll be leaving that role at the end of the season four, however, to star in the CBS political drama The 313.
