    A romantic comedy depicting the first date of President Barack Obama and First lady Michelle Obama has set its cast.

    The president and first lady are coming to a theater near you.

    Or, at least, actors portraying them will. “Southside With You" has tapped two up-and-coming actors to portray the Obamas intending to capture the romance and comedy of their courtship.

    Tika Sumpter will play Michelle, and Barack will be played by Parker Sawyers. The movie will take viewers on several stops of the two lovers’ romantic journeys including a trip to the Art Institute of Chicago, a screening of Spike Lee’s “Do the Right Thing,” and a brief moment at the 96th floor of the John Hancock building for a drink.

    Production will kick off this summer in Chicago, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
