Gabrielle Union to produce and star in The Perfect Find, a romantic comedy based on Tia Williams’ best selling book of the same name.
Gabrielle Union is set to produce and star in romantic comedy “The Perfect Find” with Stuart Ford’s AGC Studios financing and producing, Variety has learned exclusively.
The project is based on the best-selling book of the same title by Tia Williams (“The Accidental Diva”). “The Perfect Find” is scheduled to shoot in 2019.
Union will produce through her production company I’ll Have Another along with Jeff Morrone, Tommy Oliver and Codie Elaine Oliver. AGC’s Ford, Greg Shapiro and Glendon Palmer are onboard as executive producers, with Holly Shakoor Fleischer of I’ll Have Another co-producing.
Leigh Davenport is writing the screenplay, in which Union’s character is desperate to have a fresh start in the world of beauty journalism and takes the only job available to her at a magazine where her boss is her frenemy, Darcy. She finds herself struggling to keep up with her younger and more social media savvy co-workers while keeping her boss happy — and when she starts a relationship with the company’s new videographer, she thinks her life is finally turning around until she finds out that he’s the boss’s son.
