Octavia Spencer is now an Oscar-winner, allowing her to have a far greater pick of projects. Now she has joined the cast of Baggage Claim for Fox Searchlight Pictures and writer-director David E. Talbert, according to Deadline.
Back in May Paula Patton signed on to star as Montana Moore, a flight attendant who is the oldest, unmarried woman in her family. She goes on a cross-country trek to find a husband in 30 days, before her younger sister gets hitched. No details are currently known regarding Octavia Spencer’s character. Derek Luke is also starring in an unspecified role.
David E. Talbert (First Sunday) is directing from his own screenplay, which he adapted from his novel of the same name. Shooting is slated to begin in September.
