Queen Latifah, a.k.a. Dana Owens, will star in Just Wright, a romantic comedy for Fox Searchlight. The project has gestated for half a decade, having languished in the Disney system for nearly six years. It was just picked up by Fox.
The project is a modern day take on the Cinderella story, featuring Latifah as a physical therapist who falls in love with one of her patients, a basketball player who she is helping recover from a career-threatening injury.
The studio expects to start filming in late May. Latifah will take a producer credit via her Flavor Unit production company.
