Issa Rae to Star In Murder Mystery Rom-Com, 'The Lovebirds,' With Kumail Nanjiani
Issa Rae isn't playing with us in 2019!
Issa Rae has added yet another exciting project to her growing list for 2019, and we're totally here for it.
Here's a synopsis of the upcoming murder-mystery—which was written by Aaron Abrams, Brendan Gall and Martin Gerovia—via The Hollywood Reporter:
The script centers on a couple (Nanjiani and Rae) on the brink of a breakup. The pair subsequently become embroiled in a bizarre and hijinks-filled murder mystery, and as they get close to clearing their names and solving the case, the twosome need to figure out how they, and their relationship, can survive the night.
This isn't tho only romantic comedy that Rae will helm this year. Late last year, it was announced that the actress will star in the upcoming film American Princess. She'll also star in the upcoming HBO limited series The Dolls, about the 1983 riots in Arkansas over Cabbage Patch Dolls.
Earlier this month, we were treated to the hilarious trailer for Rae's upcoming comedy Little Little alongside Black-ish actress Marsai Martin, which heads to theaters this April.
