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.
