"The White House legend that is Barack and Michelle Obama's romance is heading to the screen," reported Deadline's Jen Yamato on Dec. 5. The drama, "Southside With You," will detail the Obama couple's "epic first date" the summer of 1989 – consisting of the Art Institute, a long walk, and Spike Lee's "Do The Right Thing."
In July 2015, the filming will begin in Chicago. Actress Tika Sumpter will star as Michelle Obama – but as of press time it is not known who will play young Obama.
Allain's Homegrown Pictures producer Tracey Bing said "We are looking forward to finding the perfect Barack." adding that it will be "one of the great love stories of our time."
The movie promises to be disgustingly earthy and decidedly boring.
