Nia Long continues to get steady work in Hollywood. She most recently starred in ‘Fatal Affair’ ‘The Banker‘ and the horror-thriller ’47 Meters Down: Uncaged’
And now, she’ll be returning to the romantic comedy genre. It was reported this week that the 50-year-old actress will co-star alongside Lili Reinhart and Luke Wilson in the upcoming Netflix film, Plus/ Minus.
The story centers on Natalie (Reinhart), whose life diverges into two parallel realities on the eve of her college graduation. One version sees her become pregnant and navigate motherhood as a young adult in her Texas hometown, and the other journey takes place as she moves to Los Angeles to pursue her career. Per the logline of the movie, the contrary paths lead the 20something Natalie to experience life-changing love, devastating heartbreak and rediscover herself.
Sounds kinda trippy for a romantic comedy, but I’m down. April Prosser wrote the screenplay, and it looks like it’ll be her first feature writing credit after years of being a writers assistant.
The film is being directed by Wanuri Kahiu, the director/co-writer behind the 2018 film, Rafiki.
No word on when this film is expected to be released, but we’ll keep you posted.
