Michael Ealy, Sanaa Lathan and Morris Chestnut Cast in ‘The Perfect Guy’


Sanaa Lathan, Morris Chestnut and Michael Ealy have been cast to star in Screen Gems’ thriller “The Perfect Guy,” according to an official CNBC press release.

The film is described as follows:

Leah Vaughn (Sanaa Lathan) appears to have the ideal life. She enjoys a challenging, fast-paced career as a lobbyist; Dave (Morris Chestnut), her longterm boyfriend loves her. And yet … at 36, she’s ready to move to the next phase. Marriage and a family seem a logical and welcome step. Dave is not so sure. A bit commitment phobic, his misgivings lead to a painful break up. Enter Carter Duncan (Michael Ealy), a handsome, charming stranger whose path keeps crossing with Leah’s. Caring and solicitous of Leah and her family and friends, (Charles S. Dutton, Rutina Wesley, Kathryn Morris) their relationship rapidly progresses. It seems Leah has met The Perfect Guy. But if it seems too good to be true … soon his protective nature morphs into something more sinister. It’s clear Leah has to end this new relationship and when she does, her onetime lover becomes her ultimate enemy. It will take every bit of her cunning and resolve to escape and outwit him.

Sounds like an interesting plot and neither of the three stars are strangers to hit movies. Ealy starred in the box office hit “Think Like a Man” and the recent sequel “Think Like a Man Too.” Both Lathan and Chesnut starred in “The Best Man” and its sequel “The Best Man Holiday.”

Filming for the thriller will take place in various parts of Los Angeles. There’s no word when the film will make it to the big screen.

Does this sound like a movie you will be watching?
