Tika Sumpter To Play Michelle Obama



Are you ready to see the love between President Obama and First Lady Michelle, captured on film? If you are not ready you better get ready.



Reportedly, Tika Sumpter has been selected to play Michelle in a new movie. The movie will be about the Obama’s relationship early on.

Shadow and Act Reports:

Titled “Southside With You” – I suppose referring to South Side, Chicago, home to some of the most significant figures in the history of American politics, including Obama – the project is being pitched as a “Before Sunset”-style type of movie (in short, man, woman, lots of mostly profound conversation over a period of time), which will take place entirely in one day during the summer of 1989, when one Barack Obama (then a first-year Harvard Law student) took his future wife, Michelle (an associate at a Chicago law firm), out on a first date, which included a tour of Chicago’s South Side.
