David Abert to direct BAGGAGE CLAIM


Fox Searchlight is ticketed to produce and finance David Talbert’s "Baggage Claim," about a single flight attendant who jets around the country in search of a husband.

Talbert, a multihyphenate who has earned comparisons to Tyler Perry, will write, direct and produce the movie based on his 2005 novel. Casting is under way for the prestrike project, which Searchlight hopes to shoot ahead of a potential actors strike in the summer.

"Baggage" centers on the thirtysomething Montana Moore, who, frustrated with being single, embarks on a 30-day, 30,000-mile barnstorm across America to find an appropriate suitor. Along the way she encounters several interested prospects, including a preacher, a politician and a tycoon. -BlackFilm.com
