Rappers/actors Common and Queen Latifah have signed on to star in a new Fox Searchlight film titled Just Wright.
Queen Latifah plays a sports trainer, who falls in love with a professional basketball player, while attempting to rehabilitate him from a career-threatening injury.
The script was written by Michael Elliot, while Latifah, long time partner Shakim Compere and Debra Martin Chase will produce the movie, with Sanaa Hamri directing.
Common, who is currently shooting Date Night, recently had a high profile role in the movie Terminator Salvation, which has raked in over $165 million dollars in box office revenue in the U.S. since being released in May.
Shooting on Just Wright is slated to begin next month, while the movie is expected to be in theaters nationwide sometime in 2010.
