- BAGGAGE CLAIM
Grammy-nominated R&B artist Trey Songz and Private Practice star Taye Diggs have joined the cast of Baggage Claim, Fox Searchlight’s adaptation of a novel written by David E. Talbert. The two join a cast that includes Paula Patton, Derek Luke, and Djimon Hounsou, THR reports.
Talbert wrote the screenplay and is directing the romantic comedy about a 35-year-old flight attendant determined not to show up to her baby sister's engagement party without a fiance of her own and begins searching for a man while on the job.
Paula Patton is starring as the flight attendant, named Montana Moore, with Derek Luke, Adam Brody and Djimon Hounsou also on board.
Songz will play a man with plenty of swagger who is living the life of a big-time record producer. Diggs is playing a politically-minded man with eyes on Congress who wants a wife on a tight leash.
Shooting begins this month in Los Angeles. Tim Story and Cary Brokaw are among the producers.
